    Poll: What Color of Works Should I Get?

    Ok folks,

    Help me out here. It has taken me forever just to decide on which type of wheels I will be replacing my Konigs with. I've finally decided on the two-piece Work Meister S1. Now the problem is I can't decide which color will work best with the Spicy Orange. But, at least I've narrowed it down to two.

    Originally I just assumed I would go with Gunmetal because of how well it worked on the Konigs. But, everytime I look at the glossy black ones in Rishie's pics I have second thoughts.

    So, now I pose the question to you. Which color do you think would work better with my Speed's Orange paint. (Keep in mind I will probably soon be adding a CF hood and possibly CF grill. That might make a little difference too.)

    Black:



    or Gunmetal:



    Sorry, I couldn't find any pics of these wheels mounted on a car. Rishies pics from his last shipment were definitely the best quality ones out there.

    Thanks for your help,

    Lang

    i say go with gunmetal because if you go with straight black it will standout too much imo from the cf hood/grill. just my $.02.

    Yeah, that's exactly made me lean towards the gunmetal to begin with. But, the one thing I'll say for the black is how glossy they look. Ugh, decisions.

    I like the gunmetal. Black if you want a sharper contrast.

    I'd go with the gunmetal, there's enough black with shadows and dirt on most cars anyways. I'd say go with gunmetal because of your color but especially if you can to compliment it with cf...

    i sort of investigated, but i never really delved too deep in to it.

    call it a lucky guess? i've inquired about a few other rays wheels through autornd, so i kind of took the wheels i know and their prices and...well, and added about 1000$. hahah.

    no, seriously...i know the meisters are insanely good, especially those one piecers, so i did a little deductive reasoning.
