Default Best color wheels for a Machine/Blade Silver car?

I have always been a fan of basic silver wheels, but on a silver car they just don't work as well. Chrome or polished adds some flash to silver, but it also has a more show rather than go look. Lately I've seen alot of silver and white cars with black or dark grey rims, and I think thats my new favorite. It offers a nice contrast to the silver and also adds an "all business" look to the car.

I know there are more colors then on this poll but I wanted to keep it basic.

What do you think is the best color wheel for a silver vette?

Black; tuff/hardcore/nasty/go

Polished; tuff/hardcore/classy/sexy/go

Chrome; classy/flashy/show

IMO, Comp Grey looks good, it just doesn't do much on a silver car. I pick polished or satin (notflat) black.

Choice is yours.

always liked the silver painted wheels on silver. Also like black wheels with a silver around outer perimeter. I had a silver c5 for 9 years. I really like the contrast with the tail lights and tinted windows with silver. Chrome wheels never went with silver to me. But, thats just me

If you go with black get the corresponding blue lights to match.

That's 'cause you haven't seen a silver (either one) with black wheels, tinted glass and a black roof and halo!

Actually...if you look back in time painted wheels are what was going on in the 80's. Chrome was seldom used.
