Need some help picking a rim =/

Okay guys well I've finally found the new wheels i wanna get for my focus its the axis xmx rims, I think it's zillon that has them on his focus too. But here is my problem I have a silver focus and the xmx comes in graphite silver and silver painted. I'm kinda leaning more towards the silver painted but I'm not to sure yet, what do you guys think would look best? There is also the possibility of plasti dipping them black but I'd rather not do that lol

The graphite looks excellent with silver and white. If I had a lighter colored car, I would've gone with the graphite.

Agree! I have dark blue, so it's not worth it to get darker rims or plasti-dip anything on my car. If I had gotten yellow blaze or something, I'd have done the plasti-dip "mod" to the front of the car already.

But I was never really a fan of the black-on-black-on-black-on-black-on-black-on-black-on-black. But that's just me.

I agree, dark gray looks great on a silver car.
