    Question Silver or black wheels?

    At the top is how my wheels look right now. I shopped them to black at the bottom. Which one you think looks better?

    The black isn't bad, but I think the silver looks a little nicer.

    I vote for a dark gray, like gunmetal. Can you photoshop that?

    I like the black personally. The silver looks out of place.
    You need to consider what other exterior mods/upgrades you plan on doing though so it works together.
    Will weld for beer.

    black or silver

    If you compare clean tires, I like the black myself. Given how dirty my Mirage gets during the winter, the silver may show dirt and salt less. Overall, both sets of wheels look great. Thanks for sharing a nice comparison!
