IMHO - satin rims with black centers integrates better with your silver & black trim. It just looks right. If you're looking for a twist of drama then all black will do it but it just doesn't look balanced to me.

There's a silver 930 like yours around here that has early Fuchs look with polished rims & polished spokes with the black shadow (or whatever it's called) and it is strikingly clean looking.

Surely we all know wheels are HUGE in directing the look of our cars, however, case in point, my black 930 has all blacked out RUFs for the evil streetfighter look. Threw on a set of Fuchs with polished rims & black & polished spokes and it was immediately transformed into a nice non-threatening show car look (yes even with the massive GT2 tail! ;-) Then tried satin rims with all black centers and it looked boringly plain and unassuming in contrast (cried for the stock tail so they could take a nap together in their tiresome boredom). LOL ;-) BTW - please nobody take offense to each his own, right?!?
