Canada New wheels for spring - Help me choose:)

Well, my hunt to replace my OEM wheels continues and I have come down to four different wheel models that have made the cut.

Opus is a dark silver 2002 MCS with white roof, white stripes and checkered mirrors.

I've always been partial to black wheels, but find that all-black ones are too dark for Opus's colour scheme. I also don't like black-centre wheels with machined lips.

I have my slection down to four Konig wheels:

Konig Illusion

What I need is for folks here to pipe up and give me their feelings on which of these wheels would look best on Opus.

Don't be shy and share your thoughts!

Thanks a bunch!

Konig Zero-In get my vote look easy to keep clean

I'm a big fan of black alloys as they look more racey!

And would match tinted windows!

Good luck choosing

Getting windows tinted for sure.

Not a massive fan of aftermarket wheels, but the Konig Illusion are pretty nice. The Zero-In wheels might work too, but I reckon they'd look best with some red detailing elsewhere on the car?

The other two are far too fussy for my taste...
