Help! Silver or Hyperblack CSLs on SG E90?

I'm ready to spring for some 19" CSL reps for my SG 335i. But I'm torn between basic silver or hyperblack. Which way should I go?

I've seen photos of hyperblack CSLs on L~R~G nor cal's sweet SG E90 (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=107189), but I haven't been able to find any photos of an SG E90 with silver CSLs. Any of you Photoshop experts willing to help me see how this combo would look?

Thanks for the

My vote is for the silver csls. I don't think any other color looks good on the csls.

I would go with silver. I feel your pain however....as I had a helluva time picking the finish on my vs7's. It's really tough to choose unless you can see them in person.

HYPERBLACK!!! Try to name any other wheel that still looks good with break dust. The fing bmws have sooooo much!! I like my hypers because when I feel like going dark I just dont clean the wheels for a bit. When I do this they look a lot like the gunmetals, but just a bit darker and they still have a shine to them (just the perfect amount). But when I feel like showing a bit of bling, then clean them up.

vote hyperblack.. you will always be in question if you go silver, but if you go hyperblack you will fall in love.. Everyone hates them cuz of what they look like in pics, but they dont look like the pics in person at all. IDK whats up with that, but trust me, you will love them..

the biggest problem w/ photographing hyperblacks is the flash that most pocket cameras often force. If the photo is taken in natural daylight w/ out the flash you get a much more realistic idea of the color.

Silver is always a safe bet. Plus if you ever need to sell them later on, it will likely prove to be more easier to sell.

I would REALLY like to buy some Morr Alloy VS7s or VS8s, but they are so expensive. Nice wheels though. Dang.

Go with the silver. It will contrast the color of your car much better.

Dark color cars w/ dark color wheels are so 90s..
