I ended up with black 313's with a diamond cut face, I regret doing it as there too dark for the car and not only that there a pig to keep clean compared to silver.

If I was doing it again I think hyper silver or hyperblack; which is about halfway between - CSL's is what I'd go for.

Any decent shots of these? I'd wondered about how this would look!

It looks nice on E90, but for some reason these wheels look way better on E92/3s.

I really like them!

What size are they out of curiosity?

Thanks for all the replies, saw a black car with black wheels and there was no real definition.

Mudflaps were on the car when I bought it.

black on black looks real sporty like 3 series should look like, my shadowline black window trim wrap should be in next week. 3 series arent really luxurious so idk why ppl have so much chrome and all on them

The right wheels in black on a black motor get a yay from me.

But as already said, anthracite also looks spot on and gives a subtle contrast

Garage List
For me when you have black car, wheels and tyres it makes the wheels look small. That is with gloss black as all the examples are. Go for anthracite or satin black and they will be a bit sort of grey an look awsome imo.

Not on a Black car! Not a fan of Black wheels anyway, but if you're going to do it, there needs to be a contrast between the car and the wheels.....IMHO!

For me has to be anthracite if going dark, the black just makes the tyres look brown.


I did my 18" wheels on the old M3 in anthracite....


Had the anthracite M3 wheels on Fiona's touring too...
