Default 2008 DGM WRX color choices?

I am saving up for some 18x8.5 rota grid +44 rims for my Dark Grey Metallic 08 hatch. I am stuck between flat black or hyper black.

I am kinda liking the hyper black more, but let me know what you think would fit better?

My current rims are 17 inch flat black with a silver machined lip, but the grids do not come with the machined lip and would look "bland" in flat black?

I have the 18 X 8.5 +44 Hyper Black Grids, they are a little darker and shinier than I might have liked. I would probably go with Matte Steel Gray if I were going to buy them again.

the darker it is, the more I like it. I always was a fan of glossy black/steel grey colors. Sorry if you dont like them as much gf2020, but your pictures made me fall in love with them even more.

The top one is your outback (legacy based?) and the bottom on is matte grey right? The hyper black would be a perfect or near perfect match to my paint job.

How do you clean them? Spray detailer with microfiber cloth?
