Help with wheel colour

My wheels are in the bodyshop for refurb, but I can't decide on colour.
Car is Black Sapphire
Wheels are 193 M style

I was thinking of shadow chrome, but the bodyshop is saying that its difficult to reproduce, so now I am thinking of going for the same as the new M3 GTS, looking at the pictures of that car, I can't see if they are matt or gloss

Any help thoughts guys?
PS I am wanting the stealth look. Will black be too much on a black car??? confused

Unfortunately this is not possible with an msport. Should have got an SE

Interested to see how these would look in a different colour. I think it might be weird as they are the standard msport wheels?

In summary.


Is black a colour?

No, black is not a colour; a black object absorbs all the colours of the visible spectrum and reflects none of them to the eyes.




Is white a colour?

Yes, white is a colour. White reflects all the colours of the visible light spectrum to the eyes.
