Default Gunmetal or Hyper Silver on Alpine White?

I'm looking to purchase a set of VMR VB3's.
I was 90% sure i was going to order a set in gunmetal but after seeing a few pictures of the hyper silver, I'm now undecided.

What do you guys think?


Not VB3's (but you get the idea)

I prefer silver on AW over gunmetal, but I think I am in the minority. Either one will look good. It's all in what you are going for. 1 will blend in and not be noticeable (gunmetal) and the other will show off the wheel a little more.

I'm also a fan of silver on AW. Search for forum member 'DaytonaViolet' and click on his sig pic for his gallery. His AW looks amazing with the silver CSL wheels.

Mr. Wolfe
Thanks for everyone's feedback. This is the money shot!

Which vendor has the best pricing? I've been quoted $900 shipped.

I paid around $1750 with tires from EAS a couple of years back. They are nice looking wheels. I have since went to ZCPs.

I was in Group Buy #2 on APEX ARC-8 and went with Satin Black color on AW. Now you guys make me change my mind.
