changing color of wheels... INPUT NEEDED!

Hey all,

I made an appointment to bring my wheels to get refinished and I wanted to get y'all's opinion on whether or not I should change the color of my silver wheels to a more of a gunmetal (I was actually thinking more specifically to Space Grey). I snapped a quick picture of my car before work today, it's an 07 e92 TiAg. Only cosmetic mods that you can see from the side is the shadowline vinyl trim, so there's no chrome left on this car.

Your input is appreciated!
