Which wheels?

So I have two sets of 17" original 159 wheels, currently one (Black) set has winter tyres and the other my summer ones. The silver ones are original with the car, I think the others are from a later model year. Both sets could do with some TLC but the wallet is not bottomless so I'm after some comment or opinion regarding which direction to go. My thoughts were referb the original ones in silver and leave the others, but I do like the style of the black wheels - although not black for the summer...

Keep it original.
Why dont you rub down and paint the black wheels yourself and sell them and put the money towards a set of 18'' wheels, there is a set of horse shoe alloys on ebay at the moment or occasionally the 18'' spoked wheels come up for sale, I was lucky and bought the last set that came up for sale and then keep the 17'' multispokes for winter tyres.

Black wheels look better - but maybe a lighter shade of black not a hard black.

You can plastidip them which is only temporary.
