Red face Time to Refinish Wheels - need color advice

So when this semester is over, summer will be on me, and I want to refinish the m68s I recently picked up. These are going to be on the car probably forever, they are light and I love the design. Anyway, they came to me with some damage but its not much, however i want to refinish and paint them this summer....


So i am down to 3 basic choices : hyper silver, gun metal, matte black. here is the PS on my car. Feel free to submit other color choice but please provide a PS with your color choice. a crazy color is not out of the questions just want to see what it looks like.

Stock:



Hyper Silver



gun Metal



Matte Black

Hey some people like stock? nothing wrong with that. Personally i think hyper Black. Matte black i think are for cars going in the aggresive direction. Especially on a beautiful color like alpine white

the car is moderatly tucked. and the color is definitly TiAg. not white

and it gets autoxed a lot and most of the mods are performance oriented not style....

but thanks for the vote.
