My car's silver and I want to paint the trim around the grill. Should I paint it black to match the rest of the grill or should I paint it silver to match the body color? If anyone has any pics with their stock ones painted on a silver car, please post up. Thanks.

I'd like to see some pics as well... but something is telling me silver/color coded would look better.

i like them either way. i dont think u can go wrong. I personally like the rings chrome, but i dont like anything else chrome. rings on the front and back, thats good for me.

I painted my stock grille black then did one thin coat of silver on the rings. I get a lot of comments on it.

All black with silver rings only looks good on C/F IMO.
