Buying new wheels, need opinions on finish!

Hey guys, so im looking to buy some new wheels. I've been looking around a lot and found a nice set of wheels that i feel would go nice on my car.

I drive a E90 sapphire metallic black 330i.

I don't know whether to get the VMR VB3 CSL in a Hyperblack or a Matte black.

Hyperblack: (people say the color is a lot less chrome and more black)

Matte black:

I'm open to different kinds of wheels, so let me hear your thoughts!!

My car does have the chrome lining around the whole thing so i'm not sure what will go good with that. here's my car

if your planning on keeping that chrome on your car then get the super silver. if your planning on getting rid of it get the matte black.

Yeah I think I'm gonna keep the chrome.

So no to the hyper blacks? Silver would look nice on it but I really wanna black out my car

I would choose the hyperblack if I had to choose again but I have black trim, I think I would go with the hypersilver.




Get what you like, thats what it's about.

Good point. I think I might go the silver route. I thought that if I could find a nice set of wheels with a polished lip I'd be good, but I have yet to find some like those that I like

The hyper black wheels are really nice. I think it's between the silvers and the hyper blacks

Not trying to thread jack but how much would it be to switch the chrome to black?

To the OP, either will look nice. Depends on the look you are going for

I don't know why so many people get VMR's. I mean they are nice but are so heavy.

Sorry for double posting. The mobile app doesn't let me quote multiple things..or at least i don't think haha.

What else would you suggest? I'm not really looking to race my car, just want to make it look nicer
