Which M6 reps?

Currently have the Gunmetal M6 rims on my car, and am thinking about trying the black m6 time attacks. Any opinions on which look better on a black e90? My car is mostly blacked out (tint, emblems, calipers, black cf headlights, sidemarkers,etc)

Here are pics of the time attacks from **********s

If you want to blackout your car with the wheels, i recommend you stick with the M6 time-attack wheels. It won't look completely black--it'll give some contrast, which is definitely a plus.

I think the time attack M6 reps would look better, but that's only because I want to buy the gunmetal ones off you

I think silver would look great on black cars. They will give you that nice contrast.

madisonsfinest, those wheels do look great though!

Just not a fan of black wheels... For some reason they make a car look unfinished to me - like the wheels are temporary.

I have the regular M6 reps on my burgundy E92 (I know - it's "Barbera Red") and I think they look better and more at home on my car than on an M6!

I would only do the black wheels if you are going to carry out the blackout theme throughout the car. If you are going to keep it otherwise stock, then leave the gunmetal ones for some contrast.
