I go with the black especially because of the striping. Silver and gray are by far the toughest when choosing between silver or black. If you have a vert or stripes, kinda makes the choice easier. One thing's for sure, if you choose black and can keep the silver ones, do it just for stock purposes.

Definitely would not get rid of them. I would just store them like you did.

I would definitely keep the Commemorative rims if I got black ones.

Silver. Black just looks like empty wheel wells, especially from a distance.

Silver. I'm old. When I see cars with black, my first thought is that someone stole their hub caps.

I vote for silver. I, personally, don't like the blacked-out look; I think it makes cars look cheap.

I'm partial to black myself, provided it doesn't clash with the body color.

Black or silver looks good on a silver car and obviously depends on personal taste. I never cared for black wheels but ended up getting Z28 replicas since I really like how they look on the 2014 Z. I am now looking at getting a second set of wheels in silver since I really like certain ones. The Rohana RC7s are one of my favorites. That way I can swap wheels around when I get bored with the look from time to time.
