Silver ZCP or Black 359 GTS

Can't decide between Silver or Black. My car is a black 08. What do you guys think.

Agreed with above, black needs that silver contrast. Classic look.

I don't care for the black-on-black look. The factory hypersilver finish on the ZCP wheels is understated and clean.

Also, black wheels don't really hide brake dust any better than silver. Your wheels will still have a dingy brownish-gray color once the dust starts building up.

Take it from someone who had black GTS wheels and is now waiting on hyper silver m359s squares to arrive, you want the silver! Black hides the beauty of the wheels, despite the black still looking great hyper silver is just over the top stunning. Compare my car with black GTS and another with silver

Completely changes the car

I went from silver to black on my Black E92
Silver looks better in person, black better in pictures (my opinion)

Cant go wrong either way

Struggling with this as well. Except im mineral white. Think small, granular spoke wheels like the mesh 359 need to stay light colored in order to make out any sort of detail of the rim, especially in pictures.

Plan to stay silver or maybe powdercoat some light degree of grey/gunmetal like nardo grey or something.
