which rim color looks best with AW e92?

gold is pretty much out of the question( too pimp for me), so between silver, black, gunmetal, which one would you prefer?

I'm having the same fight in my mind... I've got it narrowed to black or silver with a nice polished lip, 19"....

I was in the same dilemma... went with silver...
I figured i would probably get tired of black, gunmetal, etc...
Silver is timeless

Try some white OZ Ultraleggeras or something similar. Might look cool, if you want something different but not gold.
I think gold actually works well with white, like some BBS tyre of rim with silver polished lip.

On other hand, gunmetal is very safe choice, and looks good.

IMO AW is nice color that goes with all rims at the end of the day, so its down to what you like personally. With all above mentioned colors, you wont look like you mismatching or something.

We actually have a set EXACTLY like that in 19" coming in I think 2-3 weeks... they are on order.

In the photo those are 20's. We can order you 20's if you want.

Thanks
