That's a good look I would consider for mine. I'd like black or gunmetal on mine but not sure if it would look right with my paint color...which is the snappilly titled Light Pewter Metallic!....like a pale silvery champagne color. Two colours on the wheel might work. Might see if I can photo shop it to get an idea!
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
