Opinions please. OZ Superlegerras.

Picked these OZs but feel like the centers could be a different color. What do you guys think will look good.

Gloss black, matte black, anthracite?

Opinions or photoshop welcome.

Thanks!!Click image for larger version

Leave them alone sir. The clean look will grow on you, and you will be glad you kept them this way.

Great looking ZHP.

I agree that the gunmetal looks good yet aggressive, but the silver looks clean and classy. +1 for silver.

Black centers will ruin the wheel design's beauty op. Black tends to hide detail (hence why often times women wear black in order to hide those extra lbs), and in wheels, they tend to make the face or the entire wheel look smaller than it really is.

If you really want some crazy contrast, try gold or bronze. Though it can be hard to pull off, with the right tone/hint/shade it could look amazing.

I'd go with Gold or have the brushed and cleared. I did silver faces, black faces, Xirallic Pearl (like Anthracite but more flake) faces, all black everything with TA ring..., my favorite was the Xirallic because it changes with light sources. I will see if I can find a pic (on 996TT).
