Major difference, that first set looks like it belongs on an out dated truck.

Silver, the red would stick out like a sore thumb and the black would just blend in.

The ZR-1 style wheels are by far the best looking wheel on a C4. I wish I still had mine. I sold a perfectly good set of A-molds to buy the AR TTMs that are on my car now. They look OK... but I'm already to go back to a set of wheels like you have there.
