Should i change to the polished aluminum wheels?

I ordered my camaro about two weeks ago. Its a 2SS/RS LS3 in black. I stuck with the midnight silver wheels that come with the RS package when i ordered. My dealer called and told me I have about 4 days to change any options. So my question is should I upgrade to the polished aluminum wheels? Any opinions on why i should change to the polished aluminum wheels or leave the midnight silver wheels are greatly appreciated. Just want what looks best with the black exterior. Thanks for the help.

I have the Cyber Grey with the darker wheels and love it. Depends on what your going for. Are you a flashy kinda person or a dark sinister, bwaahaa.

If you search the site, you'll see there's not much difference in the 2 sets of wheels. IMO, I'd save the $470 and keep the MS wheels...My polished wheels look just like the MS wheels after 1 day of driving with all the brake dust

Funny you should ask that. Efpardo came over and him and I did some photo shoots. He has polished and I have Midnight silver. It's very hard to see the difference.

id just keep that cash and do the chrome rim swap for a little more cash.
The polished rims seem to be inconsistent. I have MS rims and theyre great, but if your going for the polished look, get the chrome ones!

Keep them the way they are......don't spend the extra money. I wish I wouldn't have. the midnight silvers will look great on a black car. and if you would rathyer have SHINEY, get your stockers chromed.
