Silver or Matte Black VB3s

I've been debating with myself for a while about what color wheels to get. I need help. I have a TiAg E90 sedan with tinted windows. Should I go with silver or matte black 19" VB3s? I like the contrast of the matte black with the silver car, but i'm not sure if i'll like it a couple years from now. The silver is always a safe bet, but i'm not sure if i should go the safe route. So please help me decide! Thanks.

I would do silver unless you are going for an aggressive blackout theme on the car.

silver. matte black doesn't look so good on TIAGs, may be black with lip but not this wheel style.

Oh man! I was secretly hoping that everyone would say, "matte black for sure!" or something along those lines. I think silver is probably the better choice, but a part of me is worried I'll be saying "what if" about the matte blacks after i get the silvers. Thanks for the input guys.

That does look pretty damn good. Aright, I think I've made up my mind on silver. Thanks for the pic, it sealed the deal for me!
