I'm going through the same thing, trying to decide between the VB3s and v710s, both in gunmetal. Hopefully I'll see one or the other on the street to help me make up my mind.

Pic #3 looks like Alufelgen CS-7's (curved front spokes). My vote goes to them.

VB3 gunmetal as well, not a fan of matte black on TiAg, its really hard to pull it off IMO.

I'm thinking of a set of gunmetal VB3's as well but still not convinced as everytime I relook at my Hyperback V714, I still think the hyperblack makes a good contrast to the Tiag without being over the top. I suppose I'm not looking for an aggresive look.

I like the VB3 in Gunmetal and I've been trying to convince myself that these will look better than the V714's I have at the moment. The fact is, I think Gunmetal will look a bit aggressive whereas Hyperblack is ever so subtle.

Here is my Tiag with Hyperblack V714

Sorry for the double post ..... didn't think it worked first time

Pictures 1-3 are our Alufelgen CS7 (CSL wheels). Notice the thicker spokes and curved front profile.

IMHO, I know it's not pictured above, but spoke design is very similar to the V710's.

I say AluFelgen SF71 Matte Black.

I'd go with the VB3 gunmetal between those. V710 in gunmetal look good too though.
