    Posting my Photoshop of your actual car with gunmetal. I guess the only difference is now you have a black grill.

    OP,

    You could always go gunmetal or piano....then if you wanted, just for a fun change, plasti-dip them for the matte look. That's how I decided matte black was best for me...a little plasti-dip fun trial.

    ..... flat black is a bit 2000 & late. Gunmetal wheels w/ glass black trim/grills looks mean but won't put you at the kiddy table. Just my two cents

    Wow. I can't believe you brought this old thread back. Those other pictures on this thread were Photoshopped. I wound up buying the piano black Forgestar F14s. Still need to take good pictures, but this'll have to do for the moment:

    What are you talking about? I didn't bring any thread back. I asked a question.

    That's the original paint. Unfortunately, someone just did about $1000 in damage keying my car Thursday night.

    personally I think all of the options look good but the flat black gives it a little bit more aggressive look
    my V is the same color and I've been looking for new wheel, mind telling me what the name the wheels are in the last picture you posted.
    Size, make, model, and where you got them.

    Thanks.
