Switching from a Duramax. Need help on which color to choose

Hey guys I am about to switch to a new 2013 6.7 from my 05 Duramax and I can't seem to decide which color to go with. Right now I have narrowed it down to the tuxedo black, the sterling gray, and the red. My current truck is red and I think I wouldn't mind going with a different color this round but I cant decide which will end up looking better. Is it just me or do the sterlign gray trucks look better with black rims? My plans are putting on the new platinum wheels and 35s with a leveling kit because Im trying to some what keep the stock look.

Please let me know what color yall think looks the best in the long run and over all and which color you like and why. I look forward to coming over to this forum with a new truck.

What ever you like most I have SGM and when I see a nice tuxedo black, I think they are great too. Red is not my thing, but that's just my opinion.

Ya I had a 2006 F250 with the white and tan trim. I really like how the platinum has the bumpers painted to match but I can't get over that tailgate. If they had a normal tailgate instead of the one with that platinum strip I would get one I'm black all day long

I think tuxedo black is the best looking color, but it's also the hardest to keep clean!

Insurance man. If you dont mind me asking. How much did it cost to paint your bumpers and grill surround? I really think it makes it look very clean with any color like that and wish Ford offered it from the factory. I dont mind a little chrome but sometimes I feel the new front ends have a ton of it.

Like you my previous truck was red so I went with the sterling gray. I really like it and I'm happy with the choice.
