Which stripes do you like better?

I have a sterling grey 3.7 with the stock 17inch wheels and was wondering which stripes you guys prefer out of the two. Any input is great! Thanks!

I would consider metallic silver. I put those on mine and it matches the metallic paint nicely and looks totally different in the sun vs shade which is cool effect as opposed to a non metallic.

If not I'd go with the black.

Either way, nice ride!

I have a SGM too and I did matte black stripes. So, I vote for black, just don't do matte. They are hard to keep clean and if you get any wax on them it tends to ruin them. I had to take them off.

I think that the white is way too much of a contrast for Sterling...................go with the black or a slightly contrasting silver.................JMHO..............which one do YOU like?

Go with black stripes, it just complements better with the grey stang.

What you need is to match the color of your hood and rocker strips with the color of your wheels. Otherwise, it will look too busy. This is like matching the color of your belt with the color of your shoes.

Thanks guys! I think I'm going to go for the black stripes with silver pinstripe. Maybe I'll try to match the pinstripe color as close as I can with the wheel color

Great idea, and that will really tie everything together, and not look so busy!

My vote is for black. Blends in better. Matte black would look great, but it appears to be difficult to maintain

Black or black with the thin line for sure. Matte probably best. Only other color I have liked on one of our Sterlings is the DARK blue I have seen a couple times

I would go for the white stripes. The white pops next to the gray car.

White will definitely make the paint pop more, which means you will stand out more. All about preference.

Shu's silver with black looks good in person. It is a subtle not in your face look. If you want more contrast go with white or another color you like. someone had mentioned matching color on your rims (belt/shoes) that does make sense.

Love the white stripes on the black. Makes the car pop amazing. Love the contrast of it but that's just me. A shiny black mustang will stand out just awesome even with white stripes.
