Depends on the "look" you're after. Black looks badder, silver looks traditionally cleaner IMO. Both look great with your colour - tough choice!!

Monte Carlo, just a couple shades lighter than yours. The look would be pretty much the same under LeMans (great choice btw). Go for it!!!

It would look good either way, you can definitely see the design better with silver.

Black hides their beauty somewhat - that is the only downside. They look great on Mark's M though so I guess it depends on the color of the car. That said, I would go with silver and plan to. Great wheel - can't really go wrong with either.
