Can't decide on rims.

Thinking about getting new rims for my car and havent really decided which ones to go with. So I am looking for opinions.

Here is the most current pic of my car.

I was thinking about going with the Boss 302s wheels.

But ever since the '13 GT500 came out I fell in love the PP wheels. American Muscle recently released their version.

And now they come in black.

I got these as winter wheel, can't beat the price and it won't hurt as much if hit ice and curb my rim.
 
i went with the SVE drift wheels (18x9 all around) for my winter setup, i think they look better than my summer setup, which are the stock wheels at the moment.

here are a few crappy cell phone pics.

The 302S wheels look fantastic on white cars. I like the 2013 GT500 wheels and owning the previous version I think the new ones will be a PITA to clean.
 
Appreciate all the replies.

These wheels will be year round wheels as Texas does not have extreme winter months.

I think I'm leaning towards the black gt500s. I haven't found a pic if the 302S wheels on a non S that I really like.

Sako: Can I ask what you're running for tires?

I'm running Pirelli Winter Sottozero's in 255/45/18.
I chose these against the blizzaks, because i didn't want to sacrifice handing in dry/cold weather conditions, which is what we usually see in MD. But the tires have exceeded my expectations in both snow, below freezing, and warm weather.
