Wow, took couple of days to go through this thread..
Now I'm totally confused thanks to Bav..hehe

I can't decide what so ever on what to put on my 06 330xi SG. I want to keep the chrome trim, so i need a wheel with some silver to blend with the overall look.

Have you guys ever thought about machine faced style? the wheel will be hyper silver, hyper black, storm grey (my favorite so far), etc. with machine faced finish. I think this will look good on E90 SG. For example:

I like the Eurosport Monza 19" from **********s. The gunmetal machined face. Check it out:
http://www.**********s.com/Eurosport...Wheels-BMW.htm

Any pics out there for any similar installed wheels on E90 SG-s??

Well someone had to be the first. Here's mine with Alufelgen Diamond Cut Blacks. 235/35/19 front, 265/30/19 back Conti Extreme Contact DW. Sorry for the crap cell phone pics. I'll steal someone's camera after I detail it and try and post some good pics.

My choice so far

This is the SF-71 and AFIK DTMRack is the only one that sells the Diamond Cut Series. I love the contrast between the aluminum silver face and the black wheel windows. The only thing I don't really like (and I knew this before buying them) was that the black on the wheels is a gloss and the trim and grills are a matte (plasti-dip). Otherwise I really like the dark look my car has now.

Time to revive this thread a bit. It really helped me out when looking through choices, and I do not believe these wheels have been shown here...

I ended up going with the Avante Garde M310 Machine Faced / Gunmetal. Honestly, the gunmetal looks more like black when the wheels are on. I thought that black just would not have enough contrast (although it can look fantastic with the right set up). I also did not want to go full silver... It can be a classic look, but does not tend to look aggressive enough for me. These wheels were the perfect scenario for me. Thanks to Alan at **********s for setting me up!

Wow, that set up is really nice! I was originally planning to get the Avante Garde M310 in matte black... but that color combo is giving me second thoughts! Would love to see some more pictures!

This one is simple, this usually involves a little more cash up front but why settle for something when you can get what you really want? Pick your favorite wheel and set up, locate a local shop that will 100% match to the color of your car. Or just go with silver lol. Either way theirs options just got to look around.

I too have a sparkling graphite metalic 330i.
Although this is not my car (I'm still stock), I like the gunmetal rims.

I actually settled on these. Don't have the finances to get exactly what I want (which I won't reveal bwahahahaha) but these are beautiful and sturdy, and they get the job done for now.

Alufelgen SF-71, 19x8.5 et15 on 225/35 and 19x9.5 et20 on 245/35.
