Gunmetal or royal gunmetal?

I've already tried the search about 100 times over the past few weeks and still can't find hardly ANY SILVER cars with gunmetal rims. I see lots of bronze though !?!?

If anyone can let me know where i can see some good pics of a silver focus with gunmetal (slipstreams preferably) or royal gunmetal ....would be greatly appreciated!!

haha....no seriously...i've tried the internet, ebay, focus forum(s) NA and International and literally hours upon hours for the past few months almost every day and all i can find are the SAME pictures of the rota slipstreams. I'm wondering if anyone is out there with the actual wheel in gunmetal or royal gunmetal with a focus. There has to be someone.

I'm trying to see how it looks on a silver focus (sedan or hatch). The pictures of the gunmetal rota slpstream actually looks kinda darkish bronze which im pretty sure is not accurate. I think it's supposed to be a dark (almost blackish) grey.

just an example to share my frustation: here is a sample of 3 of the EXACT same gunmetal rota slpstream wheels but you'll notice in the photos they are all a different color....the left looks the darkest (almost granite black), the middle looks like light granite or midnight, and the right looks like a hint of bronze. You can't buy a wheel just by looking at pictures of it, you need to see it on the car in the real color. These three all exactly the same wheel (gunmetal) but i can't tell which one is the real one. That's why i'm asking for a real pic on the car.
