Entirely a matter of personal preference. You're not going to get many serious answers on that here.

The silver is the only thing that looks right to me, but there are some blacked-out ones rolling around that look ok too. Any other color just looks stragne on Virgo's to me. What color/kind of car are they going on? 240? Ford Taurus? I'm not sure but I don't think they clear the calipers on 7/9 series..

I've got Duplicolor silver Virgo's on one 245, and black Virgo's on the wife's 245. The gunmetal gray looks good too but I've not actually tried it.

Good luck....

I used Silver Wurth Wheel Paint I find it easier to use. I recently painted all 6 Virgos I have, 4 on car, 1 in trunk as spare tire, and one left over,(now bent unfortunately)

Mine need to be sandblasted as they are ugly as hell right now, actually thought of a high gloss black but since my 240 is black I think I'll stick to a silver metallic...
