The silver tends to look the best, imo, on those cars with silver/chrome window trim. The hyperblack looks great on those with the black window trim.

It's a tough decision, but silver looks a little better I think.

After much deliberation, I decided to go with silver CSLs. I figured the contrast with the SG would make the wheels stand out. Thanks for all the recommendations.

My Miro CSLs will be here shortly. Photos coming soon...

if there was a third choice i would vote for gunmetal csl, the other two are definitely nice and classic, just my 2 cents.
