New Wheel Opinions for Glacier Silver ('Chops Inc.)

I'm looking into new wheels for the 6. I've loved my Enkeis, but it's time for something new. I'm looking at TSW Interlagos or Nurburgrings. Pics attached below. Any opinions welcome! I never really liked black or dark wheels, but on the silver, those colors are really growing on me

TSW Nurburgring - Matte Gunmetal


TSW Nurburgring - Gunmetal with Silver Mirror Cut Face


TSW Interagos - Matte Black


TSW Interlagos - Silver with Mirror Cut Face


As for lowering, I'm undecided on that. i do't really want to lower the car and sacrifice ride quality and ground clearance, but I want the wheels to look right.

Looking for some honest opinions on the above options.

TSW matte IMO.

Def go for a drop, it will set it off so nice.

Wasn't paying attention sorry, I meant the nurburgs. I like the ten spoke look of speed3 wheels, but those just don't do it for me for some reason (yes I know they are 9 spoke not 10-but still).

Well, I'm liking the Matte Gunmetal Nurburgrings more and more. Here's a side profile with the car lowered slightly.

Whadda ya think?
