Rota slipstream which color?

I'm having a hard time deciding on which color rota slipstream i should get for my cd metallic (silver) focus?

Steel Grey or Gunmetal? (are they very similar?)
How would flat black look on a silver? (or is it too similar to winter steelies).

If anyone has some pics of rota slipstreams on a silver focus (either black, gunmetal or steel grey) pls post so we can see.

im going with 16x7 size (not 17s or 15s).

I say both would look nice, but personally I would go with the gunmetal, as I think it gives it a bit more uniqueness... But at the end of the day it still only depends on what you think :p.

Can I just ask why everyone likes Rota Slipstreams? My Rosh rims are 12 lbs too and they are 17s...I’m guessing they must be good rims because to be honest, they look really cheep and hondaish…

I admit the slipstreams aren't my #1 choice on the focus but what i like about them is lightweight and it doesn't scream out for attention. My fav look is the EAPs but the problem is they only sell them in 17" size and the drawback is the extra weight due to the size of the wheel and then the 17" tires you have to buy too.

Is there anyone that has gunmetal slipstreams on a silver focus? Or even a photoshop would be pretty close.

slips are great looking wheels, are light and are cheap, whats not to like?

and yeah any color would look good on silver but the gunmetal might offer some needed contrast
