it would definitely be more aggressive if that's what you're aiming for

silver wheels pop.

black wheels blend in and are aggressive.

have you considered a gunmetal? or a really funky color - like a red?

IMO, it would look better with gun metal. Black reminds me of those wheels under hub caps on Corollas and such...

I think they look great silver with a white car. I have to say if you want black wheels you can sell the 193M's for about what it would cost you for a good set of black VMR's. The 193m's are highly desirable and will sell easily. A set of VMR's are about 900 bucks.
