Default Input on wheels for Silver S6

I think I am going to go with Hartmann for my winter wheel set. They don't have many 19 inch models that will fit the S6 so I have decided to go with the "rotor" style.

I am looking for some opinions on which model you think looks best on a Silver car...I am leaning to the dark style rotor but wonder if it's too dark?

I think some contrast is good, so I would also lean toward dark. Either one would probably look good. Can you post a pic of the car or one like it?

Same thing here - I'd go for the darker one for contrast.

Are these going to be your daily wheels, or are these winter wheels?

I've had my eye on the second one for a bit. Close to pulling the trigger but wanted to do the matte finish 20x9 ET29 as daily's and my current stock 19s as the winter set. The gloss looks nice as well but they only come in 19s. Can anyone advise if 20x9 ET29 will fit?

For winter wheels, I vote for the darker version. They're going to get covered in brake dust and grime anyway, and depending on how severe winter is for your area, who knows when you'll get to clean them next.
