So the question is:

What color to paint the insets? (the silver part - lip is polished)

The truck is white.

Planning on going with orange for stripe color.

Also planning on painting calipers hugger orange.

So, here are some options:

Gloss White

Gloss Silver

Gloss Gunmetal Grey

Gloss Black

Gloss Orange

:word: to that I don't like them. And I say don't paint them or anodize them or get black ones. Leave what ever wheels you get chrome or polished, however you buy them. But thats just my opinion.

I agree with tfunit on this one. With a white truck, I think SOME wheels with the inserts painted white would look pretty good, but that's only if the spokes are VERY thin. In this case, leave those wheels alone.
