What color/style rims on e92 jet black 335i?

On an otherwise blacked out car (black grilles, black window trim, black reflectors, tints, etc.), what would look better? Silver rims or darker (grayish/black rims)?

i.e.



vs.



Not in terms of the car look itself, but the color combo. Thanks.

I believe black wheels move the car in a ghetto direction.

I think you need to compare the same exact cars when deciding rims/wheel choices. The first car has an aero lip, maybe side skirts, drop, and fresh wash. The second car seems to have a stock body, and the stock drop, without being washed. With that said, I think the M6 rims look better either way.
