Default wheel ideas for a white '65 stock bug?

I bought another beetle this week. A very stock looking '65.

It came with standard steels:





I had a set of Empi style wheels in the shed which I've thrown on to see how they look:






It's such an original, stock bug that I don't want to lower it or change it too much but as they say, wheels can make a car. I think the Empi's are ok, but might look better in a contrasting colour?

Otherwise I'm thinking that BRM's could look good. Any thoughts? Anyone got a set of BRM's for sale?

Stock wheels if it were mine.
Maybe with an inch or so banding just for slightly wider tyres.
