ZCP Wheels (Silver or Black) on AW

Just as the title says, what does everyone think would look better?

ZCP Wheels (Silver or Black) on AW?

I like gloss black better than flat black, the satin on the GTS wheels is nice, but gloss black matches the trim a lot better, especially on AW (IMHO).

Silver is a lot classier...That's why I went with black.

Neither, hate black wheels and the silver gets lost with white. A nice gunmetalish color with white, thats a good look to me.

I like silver, it defines the tire sidewall. IMO black blends it too much.

IMO - Satin Black...matte, not so much unless it's track wheels - Though Silver does look classier/clean if that's what you want, but everyone has it.

More difficult (for me) to get good pics of black because it looks washed out. Black looks much better in person...especially with a BBK behind it.
