Default Pin stripe color suggestions?

What color pinstripe would you use on an all white 2009 F150 with gray interior? Black, gray, silver, red, or maroon?

the norm is to blend the pin stripping in with an existing color on your truck, your truck is white. if you have say black rims, i would go with black stripping. chrome, polished rims silver stripping.

Or gray to match the interior.

Well I have to say I went with charcoal gray metalic stripes. It looks terrific! It brings out the gray interior and the gray rims. (XL) model has the basic gray rims, but this gray stripe rather than black just seemed to pull it all together. The Factory should have come up with this idea so that the XL doesn't look so,.... well......basic. Thanks for your suggestions.
