Matte black or dark charcoal stripes?

I cant decide between matte black or dark charcoal t style hood stripes on my Brilliant black R/T . Ridergraphix makes a great set with the stripe extending down over the front bumper. I like the matte black but I I have the gunmetal MB old schools and think the grey would pick up the wheels. Can't make a decision. Any ideas ?

I like the charcoal personally. Would look good with the wheels.

Leaning towards the grey just trying to find a good picture of them on a black one.

As you can see in my avatar, I have the matte black on black (so-called "ghost stripe") on my 2012 R/T. While I like the very very subtle effect it has, I would more than likely have chosen a charcoal grey matte IF an OEM R/T classic stripe would have been available in that color.

That is, a little more than just a textural contrast would have been my first choice.

Good luck with your decision and eventual purchase.

Respectfully,

Gary aka "beamg5"

Matte black or dark charcoal stripes?

My BBP Challenger has a carbon fiber stripe, but gives off a charcoal appearance. It compliments the Hurst wheels with the charcoal inserts nicely.

If you want to be different, go with dark charcoal. 90% of what we sell is flat black, and very common, but dark charcoal is much richer looking.
