Black or Gunmetal rims?

I have a Limited in the Steel Blue color. I need to paint my rims because they look terrible and I might do it tomorrow, I cannot decide what color to do. Should I go with black or gunmetal? It has the silverblade rims. If anyone has pictures of theirs that would be great, I can't find many in Steel Blue from searching.

I'm really interested in seeing those gunmetal takeoffs on a WJ, I am wondering what they would look like on my blacked out jeep!

I'm a fan of the gray myself. Here's mine with factory gray JK wheels.


There's someone else on here that has them on a Steel Blue WJ as well. If I find the pic I will post it.

That's a good look I would consider for mine. I'd like black or gunmetal on mine but not sure if it would look right with my paint color...which is the snappilly titled Light Pewter Metallic!....like a pale silvery champagne color. Two colours on the wheel might work. Might see if I can photo shop it to get an idea!
