I personally like silver wheels on black cars, unless of course you want to go with the blacked out look.

i know its not what you want to hear,but i like silver on anycar realy,imho,i dont think dark coloured wheels realy stand out,they kind off blend in with the tyre if you see my point.

but it is your choice,so go with what your happy with.
