Silver is perfect with your car color.

Thanks for all the reply guys!

Silver gives it a more classy look, while I think Gunmetal will give my car a more tuner look and at this point I'm not sure what direction I want to take my car, lol. I talked to Velgen and they told me that they can put both colors so I can see what each of them would look like. I might have to do that before I make my final decision.

Oh by the way, this picture of these gunmetal wheels does not do the color justice. Velgen has a very special gunmetal look. This image shows off the color correctly.

I recently ordered Tanabe NF210. I didn't want too much of a drop since this is my everyday driver.

This is going to be a tough decision, lol. I'm definitely going to have to see both on my car. I think if I had the F-Sport front bumper it would be a easier choice.

Too bad I'm actually going to do this, haha. To see which side I like better... but that's probably going to make it worse! I'm too much of a indecisive person.

Haha, I would, but you see them too much down here in Miami. Velgen is new/fresh. You rarely see them out here.

Yes that's why I thought it would be interesting to see how they would look on liquid platinum.

Gunmetal FTW. Before seeing this thread, I would have thought for sure that the majority of you blokes would choose gunmetal. Just goes to show, you can't argue about taste.

Both look great. You will be happy either way.
