Please help...Wheel Choice on Ashen Gray

Help me decide. I have a day or so before the order gets sent to GM. Which wheels look better on Ashen Gray, the black 10-spoke or the polished? They both look so good on the car.

Thanks!

I am getting Ashen gray with the black ten spokes. I will be looking for different wheels in another year. But I like the contrast better with black.

Polished ... Personally I don't like black wheels on anything.

I ordered the black 10-spoke with my Ashen Gray ZL1. I think it gives it a tougher look than the polished.

WAY tougher, polished is just too ordinary, I want this to stand out from all others, the Ashlen Grey would have been 2nd choice, but cant beat the contrast of the White.

Look at the 2013 covertable pics the optional five spoke wheel are on it and it is just too plain IMO. the carbon concepts has painted black 5 spokes with machined face but I still don't like the 5 spokes but wheels can be refinished that would give you and idea of what black 5 spokes would look like finished in black.

honeslty I think a aftermarket wheel would look better on this color. somethig with ashen gray or cabron elements in the wheel but of the two facotry choices the ten spoke looks better.

If you're getting the exposed carbon fiber Mohawk then take the five spoke. If you're getting the black mohawk then get the ten spokes. kinda depends on your personality. if you like to be flashy or not.

Look at the thread labeled photoshop request. I would say get the five spoke powder coated black. I think it is the best looking wheel with the best color!
