Help me decide - RIMS - BLACK OR WHITE?

I building them with Silver Hadley hubs.

Never had a white wheelset and thought about something different, but thought that they would look stupid with silver hubs. My silver hubs on my black 819s looked really good.

Maybe silver spokes with the white rims and silver hubs? suggestions?

My current set of rims on my heckler are white, but with red alloy nipples,stainless spokes and red hope pro II hubs. I think white rims will look good on the black frame, but not sure about the silver hubs.

Split it down the middle...silver rims, after all, you're using silver hubs...

Get new hubs.
Haven't got the hubs yet. The silver hubs were REALLY tight on the black rims with my previous dark grey frame.

I'm open to suggestions, but don't want ot get TOO blingy.

They will definately be Hadley hubs though....

Black rims....

Keep the silver hubs. Then go black spokes and silver nipples with the black rims. This is what I am planning for my next wheelset. It should look really nice.
