Midnight Silver or Polished on Cyber Grey

I know this subject was brought up in the past, but we didn't have Cyber Grey pictures back then.

I keep going back and forth and cannot make up my mind.

Do the midnight silver wheels look better on the Cyber Grey car, or the polished wheels?

Here are some pics.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14431

I think the midnight silver wheels look great in the thread that shows the pics of TAG UR IT's car in Osawaha, in the sunlight. However, I think the rims look ugly when they are unloading Tag's car off the hauler. (Sorry tag!) I think they look great on the Daytona pace car, but not in some other members photos.

Its driving me nuts! I drive to 5 dealerships today.... and not a single one I visted had midnight silver rims. They were all polished, standard non rs, or black 21's.

My order was just accepted, so if I'm going to change it I need to do it tomorrow.

Thanks for your opinion!

I got Midnight Silver on my CGM. It's the only way to go.

I saw midnight silver for the first time today on a SIM 2LT. I was actually disappointed. I ordered a 2SS RS in IOM and thought the MS wheels would look the best, but now I'm not so sure.

Hope this helps.

Polished wheels is the only way to go in my opinion regardless of the color. There the only ones that don't look dirty all the time.

Thanks for all the feedback! It looks like midnight silver is winning the poll.

Personally, I think the midnight silver weels look great in pics on the brighter cars, like yellow, IOM, victory red, ABM and others. They have a good contrast.

On the darker cars, black, dark blue, and others, I like the polished better for the contrast.

The problem is, it's a hard call on Silver Ice Metallic, and Cyber Grey since they are in the middle of the color range.

I've seen polished in person but have not seen the midnight silver yet. I was expecting the polished to look more, well, polished... They just do not seem to be as smooth and shiny as I would imagine them to be. I wonder if using some Mother's on them would make them shine even more? However, tough call on which to pick for a cyber grey, but I'd have to say polished wheels for more of a contrast.

I would personally prefer the midnight, but don't want to spend the extra money on the RS package and also new tires for the 20's when they need replaced. Plus the polished "should" last longer I would think...

To me, midnight wheels are polished wheels after 3 days of brake dust.
