Black VMR 710's VS Silver VMR 710's

Thanks for the help so far. I have narrowed it down to the VMR 710 for my new rims. I dont know which ones to get though. They both are the same price. I am wanting 19's, staggered. Not sure to get the Matte Black 710's or the Silver VMR 710's. Please help

That is my winter set on the car. If anyone could do a Photo shop comparison for me, that would be great.

I would say matte black, but that is one of my favorite wheel finishes.

I agree. For a nice clean classy look i would go for Hyper Silver. If you going for a super aggressive look, then MB.

I have to agree with Charles. Hyper silver V710s look extra clean. Here are a couple of pics for you to check out:

V710




Here is another wheel you should consider:

Forgestar F14


They are made the same way as BBS and Enkei, but at a fraction of the price. The average 19" cast wheel weighs about 25lbs. The Forgestar F14 19x8.5 only weighs 22.5 lbs. They will be custom made for you with any bolt pattern, offset, and color you want. All for $1499 for the set. If the price is what is preventing you from purchasing these wheels, PM me. I can help you out with the cost. Let me know if you have any questions.

I like the hypersilver better for VMR 710's. If you want matte black wheels, I would go for CSL reps

ok...I switch my vote to the silver 710's, but he would have to do a few things to complete the look such as blackout the trim and grill.

Matte black, hands down. That's an easy choice if you're going to continue with the blackout theme. Here's another car that's running the same theme:
