Changing Things Up

It's been a while since I posted, for all that haven't seen my car here's the build thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=728102&page=3
If you read through it, I've had some bad luck with some stupid drivers in the past and the cars once again at LTMW. SO... I may just so happen to have a new hood being sent my way * vorsteiner 2x2 carbon* and am considering to go back to silver m359 rims. I've always been a fan of the murdered look but want others opinions before I pull the trigger. Let me know if i should leave them black, or go to silver

Hard to say, I voted for silver as I can't quite swallow the murdered look. You've got the theme going on though. What about a compromise, say, hyperblack or gunmetal? Both look good on black cars.

I can only get my hands on a pair if silver... and I love the look of m359. Plus I'm not trying to spend more money for a different type of rim at the moment.

Silver -- I prefer a little contrast. The murdered look is okay for a very modified car, but anything short of that needs the details to pop.

Just my opinion of course

(Good looking car, by the way.)

Go Silver, but some apex ec7's or arc8's with nice concavity.

It all depends on you to be honest. If you have everything else blacked out (window trim, etc). Then black wheels would be fine, or you could do a wheel setup with a lip that way you can do a black center w/ polished lip. That way you get best of both worlds in 1 hit.

Hope this helps.

Silver, all the way. A little contrast can be a good thing.

edit: just realized that this was from a few months ago, but I still stand by my suggestion.
