    I have a silver tacoma and i did my front and side emblems in flat black. It looks really good imo, the flat on silver really makes it stand out and gives the truck a completely different look.

    on silver, the only way to go is none. Black on silver.. meh... chrome on silver.. yuck. You could paint em body color. If you had a color scheme going on, brightish blue goes well with silver. But silver doesn't go well with much. Definitely not black. Interestingly enough, silver goes with black, just not the other way.
