what colour wheels for bluewater car

I'm thinking of having the wheels refurbed (standard 193) and wondered what colour would look best on my Bluewater M Sport E91. I quite fancy a dark anathracite.

If anyone has got a few pics of their non-standard colour wheels then that would be great help.

Which of the zillion shades of grey, blue and black that BMW call blue, is Bluewater?

Have standard grey myself, but think the anthracite looks good

Silver or diamond cut. Blue water is a softer colour, hardcore rims in black or anthracite do not suit it.

Similar to Silverstone II

Pinched from google, an e91 in bluewater for others who dont know the colour:



Personally I would stick with silver, a light colour will suit it best in my opinion. I would only go for darker wheels if the rest of the styling is quite aggressive or features quite a bit of carbon fibre.

nice colour as above very similar to silverstone II. I had black wheels on my silverstone II (E63) but i'd say it has to have other black accents in to look right. i think a metalic grey or anthracite would look spot on as its not so aggressive.
