Help with decision and a question

I'm set on Motegi Mr125's 17x7.5.
But I cannot decide between Black or matte grey. I'm leaning slightly towards the grey, but idk if it will look good with my car's CD silver color. Let me know what you guys think.

Also wanted to know if there was a discount or anything going on for Tire rack (since that's where I'll be ordering from).

Thanks everyone

-Evan

discount i believe is 10%, there's a thread somewhere on here. i'd go with black, because everything looks better in black IMO.

People will say " oh black is played out " but really what isnt . Unless you get bright purple wheels its " played out " . Honestly I love black on silver . But prolly gonna go with bronze next . Hopfully itll look good

I like the Matte Grey wheel but I think with the CD Silver the black would look much better. And there is no way black is "played out" It's probably one of our best sellers because it does look so good!

As for the discount, there really isn't one but anything bought from linking to the forum or calling me and telling me you're from here gets the forum a percentage. I'm not sure of the exact amount but I know it helps keep it up and running.

Thank you, I'll definitely mention your name. And also thanks for helping me decide on black! :D

I'm just worried the matte gray finish is going to be too much of an off gray color and not look good. Where as black will always look good.
I'm all for being different, but only if its going to look good.
