2010 Blue Metallic and Wheel Question

I don't see that many pictures of blue metallic with different color wheels on here.

I have a 2010 335i with beige interior and with m sport package accents. Any recommendations for wheel colors/types? I plan to get dark tints so I was leaning towards matte black wheels but from what I'm told, that might be to ghetto. What would you guys recommend? Black, satin silver or a subtle bronze?

I should clarify I think it's called Blue Water Metallic.

I'd go gunmetal. I have a set of 219m's on my E92 with shadowline trim. I tinted the windows so the gunmetal wheels look sharp IMO. Got black kidneys on the way.

Check out these two Apex wheels:

https://www.apexraceparts.com/shop-b...c-8-wheel.html

https://www.apexraceparts.com/shop-b...l-5-wheel.html

Both are lighter than any BMW OEM wheels and they have the best offset of 30 to 35 to match the original offsets used by BMW. They come in silver and gunmetal (Hyperblack). They accept BMW center caps and will clear probably the biggest brakes you would ever consider buying.

17" gives you more sidewall to absorb potholes and bad roads, if that is an issue where you live. 18" gives you a bigger wheel if you prefer. I am not a fan of 19" at all. Too big and most of them are too heavy.

Consider go flats with a Mobility kit like this:

The tires ride smoother and are about $100 per tire cheaper.
