Opinions???

Can never go wrong with Chrome or polished aluminum.

Black only works with black (and in certain conditions, yellow chrome)and it needs some kind of offset like chrome accents or color matching).

Here's my spiral gray with black Cray Scorpions with the polished lip. I think I like the stealth look of the darker gray and black wheels, although you can certainly make a case for polished wheels too. These were on the car when I bought it.
