My new wheels (back to silver)

So here is the story. I have had black rims for a while now and I wanted something different. My Black iForged wheels were 18/19 (rear tire being a 325/30/19). I have always liked the way the GS wheels looked but I didn't see that many of our C5's with them for examples (until recently). I found a GS STYLE wheel that I liked. It especially appealed to me because it was close but not exactly the same as the GS wheel. The ends of the spokes are open and the concave profile is greater. I got these in 19x10/20x12 and put a 345/25/20 Invo on the rear. I'm glad my wife is understanding because even though I got a good deal on the wheels, I still had to drop almost $2K for tires. I must say that I really like the change. This may be because I had black for a while but here are the pics...










Changed from...

The silver wheels look good. I have never been a fan of black wheels whether they were striped or not. Always reminded of the old, dirty steel wheels we saw on old clunkers run by the residents on the other side of the tracks.

seems pretty evenly mixed 50/50 for those liking the black wheels to those liking the silver. I appreciate all the comments.
