Help with color coordination

I need handlebar tape to match my blue Conti GP4000 tires. What's going to be a good color match? (I like a comfy fat tape.)

Which blue? I've seen 2 blues for Conti 4000s. (i forget the names)

For one of them, I'm pretty sure this tape is a decent match:

It is FAT and cushy! People tell me my bike would lose weight if I didn't use this tape. I went with fizik soft touch for a while, but it was so hard to keep clean, so I went back to white s-wrap. It's almost like I have wing bars now.

I know I'm going to get flack for this...white.

Wait, what color is your bike? It's also blue?

Black, blue and white.

I should've thought about Specialized - the Specialized bottle cages I already had on there are pretty much an exact match for the tires. Thanks!

No flak Rhodie - I just couldn't keep white bar tape clean enough. Blue at least hides some dirt.

Match the color of your eyes! Say, what color ARE your eyes?
