    Kinda depends really .... are you looking to just protect the surfaces (then a darker colour makes sense) or are you after a more cosmetic effect (so you'd then be looking at colour matching or contrasting) ?

    Well...

    Silver is always OK, of course, but should look just as dull as nothing as soon as it gets dirty with brakes pads dust.

    Gloss Black is always OK too (same remark)

    Red will still look red even when dirty, and should also fit any body color, considering the already huge red area on the tail lights.

    the problem here is avoiding having too much different colors so your car looks like a parrot... You already have blue (body), red (tail lights), black (trim) and silver (wheels) parts on your car... So maybe avoid adding yellow, etc.

    Now VXr Blue will be really nice on your car. Don't think it'll be too much. The whole wheel area is black and silver, and it's quite a wide area. Blue will really look nice on your blue car, don't worry.
