Black or Gun Metal

I am going to be getting the stock rims powder coated. Was wanting some opinions on color. My jeep is mineral grey. I was thinking a 60% gloss black but as the rims get dirty it looks as if a gun metal would look good also. What do you guys think? Anybody photoshop this? Or have pics of a mineral grey with gun metal? i have seen it with the black. Thanks!

They both look awesome, but you will be original going with Gunmetal Grey!

I have thought about that, I think that it would look good. But I am getting a free powdercoating so I need to pick a color that he has. Could you even get mineral gray for a powder?

Looks like to me. But at the same time looks like it matches the body.

Decision's Decision's, I think the gunmetal would look great with the silver or red, but I am leaning more towards the black. Now do I do gloss, 60% or flat. Eventially all my trim will be plastidipped, I have been doing some long term testing and so far the stuff holds up incredible. I wish I had the skills to do some photoshoppin'.
