Default What Wheel Color w/ Miami Blue?

Which would have more "punch" in your opinion? Narrowed down to 2 options. THESE ARE NOT THE WHEELS, JUST THE COLOR COMBOS.

• Matte Anthracite with Gloss Anthracite Lip



• Matte Black with Gloss Black Lip



Appreciate the thoughts.

Mr. Wolfe

This is normally my answer to everything.

But... it depends on the car. If Miami Blue is what I think it is, and this is a 911 we're looking at... I think that anthracite might not pop enough to go with that loud a color, while a gloss black maybe might.

I feel weird saying that though. Because I tend to oppose to black wheels out of hand in 99% of cases.

100 freaking percent. That is exactly how I feel. I typically stray away from black wheels, but Miami Blue is a very loud color. It is similar to Laguna as it has a greenish tint (like Miami Dolphins). I love the anthracite, but will it get lost?

Gloss black with Miami blue, but matte/gloss is kinda cool too.

If you look at the Miami Blue GT3RS's out there they look great with contrasting black accents/wheels.

With bold colors, the black seems to work well. As long as you keep the wheels/tires clean, it looks really good.

Porsche Chartreuse Green or Audi Nargo Gray would also look great with black wheels.
