Default What color rims for Steel Gray metallic?

For those of you with a Steel gray metallic Subaru, what rims do you have and/or like on our paint scheme?

I am really horrible at finding compatible colors, and the shops around here like the bling or excessive $$$ rims, so I'm limited to TTR.com wheels, and well, pictures don't do real life justice.

This is the rim I'm thinking about getting; GOLD ::: LIGHT GRAY ::: SILVER


So what do you think would look best on a Steel Gray Metallic Impreza? I doubt I'd go with the silver, probably gold or light gray.

I basically want this rim (in 17 x 8 trim) for my 2.5i because it is lightweight, cheap, and IMO a nice rim for the car. Unfortunately, they are G-cast, but I don't plan on rallying anytime soon, so as long as they can take the occassional small pothole or bump, I'm happy.

17.8 would be fine for 2.5i right? I want to keep stock weight rims, add circumference, but not add to much drag.

LIGHT GRAY is the best that they have that is closest to gunmetallic.

How come the silver is listed at 13.7 lbs, and the light gray is listed at 14.6 lbs for the same size??? Based on looks, I prefer the light gray.

I've got CGM and had gold on them. I thought it looked good, but in the end I changed the color to a dark gray. Looks a lot cleaner now...I know CGM and SGM are different, but you have to admit in certain lighting they look almost the same
