AEV Pintlers - Silver or Argent?

Have a new Wrangler on the way. Thinking about a set of Pintler's with 285/75/17 Duratracs.
My question is, which color wheel is closer to the Billet Silver Metallic Jeep?
Better yet, any pictures?
Thanks

Here you go!

I have Argent and they are real close and good contrast. Just last week went Plasti Dip Black as we have some snow coming to KC and wanted to protect them a little and help me make the decision on if I want new black wheels.

They really have a color called silver and a color called argent? That's a bit redundant.

Argent is grey, silver is silver

Actually it's not redundant at all. They are different colors. Argent is a great alternative to black wheels that provide some contrast.

I will say the Pintlers look great in any color but if you play in the rocks there are better choices. AEV have a new rim called the Salta that is good looking and appears to have a better bead area than the pintlers.

I have silver on my billet Rubicon. I'm on a tablet, so I don't have pictures to post, but I have not long ago. Search my older posts and you'll find them.

Argent means silver (from the Latin and Greek words for silver). It's a word usually used regarding heraldric devices, where it occasionally was used for white as well.

You may not agree that it's redundant, but it'd be unusual to have one item in Red and other that looked blue but called Rojo. Not sure how else you'd describe it.
