Best wheel color for Silverstone II?

Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on the best color wheels for Silverstone. I think it's a bit tricky since it is not a true silver like TiAg or in the grey family of SG.

With that characteristic hint of blue depending on the lighting, anyone have any experience with wheel colors?

+1 Brushed gets my vote, IND's SSII project car is another stunning example.

Very nice, Spencer! The brushed does look good.

BTW, what % tint on the windows?

SSII is a really tough color for wheels. To me there is not a clear favorite like most of the other colors. I do think brushed looks good, it's not perfect however. I wouldn't recommend gunmetal with this color, but I'm not a big fan of gunmetal in general, even though I've owned 2 sets. It really does look like wheels covered in brake dust.

Yet to see a SSII with black wheels. Not sure how it'll look to be honest.

Yes, I agree. Especially difficult when trying to judge based on pictures only. Do you currently have gun metal on your SSII?

Alloy Technic. They are probably one of the lightest wheels on 20's

Brushed is the way to go if you wanna make the SSII shine.
