Question Powder Coating Rims - Need Help Deciding

So I have now had a murdered car for almost two years, switching different rim styles along the way. I'm currently on matte black m359's and am wanting to switch it up and powder coat them. As of now I am leaning towards a gunmetal of some sort (my favorite is the pressed graphite volk makes)but am open to all suggestions of colors. Fire Away!

I think you've already got the right idea. I love the look of gunmetal wheels on black cars - mean yet still some contrast to show off the wheels.
Also, I've always been a fan of this custom color that's sort of a gunmetal and polished black hybrid.

thanks that looks like a sick color, a little afraid that it would be too dark though and look like gloss black, need to see it in person. This pressed graphite
for those who were wondering what color it was

Now that you posted the pic, I like the Pressed Graphite color better for your black car.

Go for jet anthracite, it's a matte gunmetal color that looks awesome on black.
Here's my car

Gold sounds nice, but I think white would be too much.

gunmetal ftw, black wheels look good on some cars, but sometimes they just look.. well invisible on cars since you can't see the design at all

We have the same wheels! LOL
That jet anthracite that was shown above looks awfully nice.
Maybe a bronze or gold like you mentioned.
