wheel help with my 07 328 xi sedan

Hey, im new to this site and could use alot of help with my new car. I have a jet black 328 xi sedan, and i have questions about the rim size i should be looking at. should i go 18" or 19"? also, what do you guys think looks better, the gun metal or just black? my windows are tinted at 15 percent as well so the car has a blacked out theme to it sort of. examples of wheels would be much appreciated

If the cars not lowered, I'd stick with 18", 225/40/18 all around, or 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 if you get staggered wheels.

Gunmetal FTW, provides just enough contrast

really depends what look you want to go with. You said you have a blacked out theme going on, so you can go the full murdered out look with Black wheels. Or gunmetal will offer a nice contrast. Wheels are an accessory, and are a personal taste, so you'll get a whole bunch of opinions.

Myself, I would go with either a matte black finish(murdered out looks great IMHO). gunmetal/Machined face wheels also look great on blacked out cars.
