Default SUGGESTIONS PLEASE - wheels for my 05 sti - silver OZs or stock gold BBS

I just got my 18" summer setup (gram lights 57f) and am trying to sell one of my other 2 sets of wheels (keeping one set as a winter set)

I have a set of SILVER 17" OZ superleggeras and a set of my GOLD 17" BBS stock from an 05 sti.

My sti is aspen white...and I'm quite torn by the two, in regards to keeping one vs the other.

I guess I'd start a poll...as I have no need for 3 sets of wheels and tires.
Suggestions welcome...thanks all
(you may have also noticed that I am putting them in the FS section as well...)


pics for kicks...

I like the look of the gold BBS more than the OZs. The OZs are lighter so thats a plus. In the end I would sell which ever one would yeild more $.
