Best looking wheel for JB e90 325i? Pics included

I need your guys help selecting type and color of wheel for a Jet Black e90 325i. I need to decide ASAP to pass safety inspection. Please help.

I'm thinking of going with either AG 359 or VMR 710 in matt black (might be too dark) or gunmetal?
Which one do you guy think would look better on this car? Could anyone recommended a rim with lip?

This are the first pics I post of my car here.

No good examples off the top of my head, but I always enjoyed the two toned with black cars... here are some examples (not suggesting any wheels specifically, just to get the idea across).

VMR is a good brand for BMWs. A lot of guys are going with the matte black look lately, but gunmetal would be a good safe choice if you are hestitant to go that dark. Once you do though, I'm sure you would like it.

If you check images for VMR 710 matte black, there are several pics that will show up on guys cars.

I'm a big fan of hyper black and hyper silver. If I had the cash I would buy some hyper black finish for my JB E90.

Have you looked at the Jet Black picture thread? you might see some ideas there. Start at the last page and work backwards...

Hi guys, thank you so much for the responses so far. I forgot to mention that the car now has dark tint 20% all around, so already looks darker.
I like the responses so far. I wish I could find better (more) examples of JB cars with concave and lip rims. Anybody that can point me in the right direction. I need to get this done before the end of the month.

Also in the same boat as you. Black will be too black IMO. I'm leaning towards gunmetal vmr 710.
