I've seen platinumsc's with silver and black and to me the best choice is chrome. Not because I have chrome but it matches the color best. I had this same dillema (sp) when I got my platinumsc. After much consideration I came to the conclusion only chrome brought out the platinum color best.

Here's a picture of my car with brushed center, gunmetal spokes, and polished lips. This is before I got the coilovers on my car so please excuse the monster truck look.

Brushed center polished lip personally. It all really depends on the person. I want my wheels to flow with my car. Not be the center of attention.
