It sure does look nice.. I noticed a lot of people say it's more of a satin black than it is matte. I'd have to see it for myself lol but they are nice though!! I do think hyper silver stands out more though... hehe black seems to disappear with the tires.

Love the rear quarter



My car

Dirty wheels



Clean and shiny pic. The wheels look matte with brake dust and semi-gloss (even though they are called "matte black") when clean. They are stunning when clean and I normally wash them twice as often as the car.

I say go with the silver. Someone else already said it, and I agree that the contrast really works well with Space Gray.

Gloss black CSL style...



Going black does make the car look more aggressive, but I really think that it really finds its ideal look with a set of rudely coloured calipers of a big brake kit poking through the spokes!

To each their own.

I find silver rather boring because every wheel from the beginning of time has been some shade of silver.

IMO gunmetal/graphite are the best color wheels. They're dark enough to be aggressive and different than traditional wheels, but they aren't technically black so they don't get "lost" with the tire.

But on a gray car, gunmetal is too close to the actual car color so that's why I think black is best. But whatever floats your boat.

Gunmetal on mine... It's a love/hate relationship. I dont like the color so close to that of the car, but black wheels are a no-no (loses all definition of the wheel design/blends with tire/can't tell a donut hubcap rim from an ADV1 in the dark with black/plus all teh ricers paint their (stock) wheels black/looks cheap.

Silver is good to go, but mine is sport/Msport so i have black trim, plus added performance grills, so now Gunmetal is the only way to go. Any shade of a lighter Silver will match nothing, plus with a CSL style wheel will look like stock wheels.

My2cents.

I think any high quality wheel gets my vote, no knockoffs, reps, etc.

Space gray can pull off so many diff wheel finishes, there isn't just one.
