I would say go for it. I've been looking for wheels on and off for a long time for my Cosmic. The gunmetal on those EKM3's are too dark. On the other hand, the silver would really pop with the dark blue paint.

Here's a dark blue car with those wheels for reference:

That's exactly what my problem was, The Gunmetal seemed a bit to dark. Silver does seem it would contrast a bit better

Always liked those hfps! Like Gtman said the gunmetal color on the eks seem quite a bit darker then yours so I was debating the hyper silver ones for that reason

Also what are you running for your tire size Deezy? I was thinking about going with the SI size for a bit better fitment

My wheels are only 7.5" wide, so I'm running 225/40 with 20mm spacers.

I bought 17-inch EKM wheels for my SI coupe to be used in winter. These wheels look great and I always like hyper silver.
The only issue is because of the many spokes, they are harder to clean. I used to wax the wheels before storage and I do not bother anymore.

Not the best shot I found online but the black Oversteers dont look bad from the side on the cosmics, Still thinking silver would look better
