I'd probably go for the Silver option with that body colour, but I like the black wheels too - tricky.
What size?

Yeah, I think I'm 70/30 in favor of the black. Just can't decide yet. Luckily I don't have to right now. They're 18s.

Here's a little mockup I did.

Yeah looks good, Silver is the 'safer' option but looking at that pic, the Black will look very good too - esp. if you tinted the rear windows a touch (not blacked out) to 'tie' the darker colours together.
