Default What colour wheels?

Hi, so basically iv got a black e60 with black sprayed and lacquered stock wheels, I'm getting them refurbished and powder coated and I'm struggling what colour to go, stock silver, stay black or a shade of grey like gunmetal or anthracite, the car has a slight tint of blue wich I hate and even tho i like black on black it really makes the blue tint stand out with my wheels being Jet black now, what dose everyone think? Cheers

Are you sure you car isn't Monaco Blue instead of Black Sapphire? What color code shows up on your plate?

(BTW, I personally hate black rims, but that's just me. You can't argue with people's tastes.)

I think it's carbon black, it just looks blue when the light hits it, yeah I agree after a year of having black on black I'm really bored with it, I'm definitely leaning towards a grey colour, just not sure wich grey will go best

Go with the gunmetal colour which also has some blue in it and it will better match the blue in your black. I also don't like black wheels.

Yeah that's not a bad idea, I'll have a chat with the lads who are doing it and see what different gun metals they have, thanks bud
