Help choosing new rim color!

I have a Black Sapphire Metallic E90 330i with ZSP and I am in the process of ditching my factory summers on the used market for some new 19" Alufelgen SF-71's. I am caught up in what color of rim to get that would go the best with the BSM. I am not interested in a black on black look as I like a little contrast. I am leaning towards Hyperblack but the sports gunmetal keeps getting my attention. Regular gun metal seems cool too. What do you guys think?

Anyone with pics of a BSM car with any of the shades listed above would great!

Hyperblack. I know you didn't mention it, but silver would look great if you're looking for contrast.
