I have the stock gunmetal F Sport wheels on my GS and I love how they make the Liquid Platinum paint pop. That's what I like about them. IMO, Silver on silver looks pretty pedestrian. I would definitely go silver on darker cars, but not Liquid Platinum.

More and more upscale cars (think Jaguar R Series) are coming with dark wheels as options, so I think they are more mainstream now and not considered "tuner".

I saw these in person and gunmetal is pretty cool colour. Has a hint of blue in the paint in different shades. Let us know what you decide on

silver gives it a clean luxurious classy look.
Gunmetal gives it a mean and aggressive euro look.
just my 2cents, I'd go Gunmetal on LP all day.

Gunmetal = Anthracite (BMW)

It's great when you're dealing with a lot of brake dust.

dark rims to me, make it seem like your going for an aggressive look, silver rims to me make it seem like your going for the clean look.
I choose the clean look. by the way anyone think of putting up 22's on the new GS?

Gunmetal looks good with the color of the car honestly.
