Glossy black or Hypersilver??

Hey guys I have a ?..I've been trying to decide whether to go with glossy black ( sporty ) rims on my 2008 white 535i ( creme beige interior ) or a hyper silver look. I think the silver is a little more gentleman like and now being a ceo ( my own company ) lol i think i should go with the cleaner look and choose silver.

the rim choices i have selected are the vmr v710 and the forgestar f14...probably going to stick with the stock 18 ' tires i currently have on there now also.

what do you guys think? black or silver.

attaching a picture of my car also if it help. Thanks in advance.

Silver seems to be the safe choice, but I like the look of the F14 in Piano Black.

personally, i like the F14s in gunmetal, having owned them...They look classy and I got tons of compliments. PYspeed is doing custom powder coating on V710s, so you could go that route as well...

If you're a CEO, you'll most likely be driving clients around, which is safe to do silver. Some clientelle might think it's trashy to have "sporty" black rims on your car. It may be stupid, and you may think your clients wouldn't think that way, but I know my father has had similar problems, where clients have said "Lets take my lexus" not wanting to be seen in a sporty 3 series. He does financial advising.

Personally think silver looks best. The black wouldn't work unless you had other modifications to your car.
