Question SGM Conundrum!

Im completely sold on Vb3's... and for the longest i thought I knew that they would be the illest in hyperback on a SGM E92. But recently dark cars with dark rims aren't looking that appealing to me.. kinda night rider ish... no offense to the murdered crowd!... now im feeling hyper silver is the best move. Whats your opinion?

Although I have a TIAG coupe , I initially wanted hyper black , but due to availability I got the hyper silver. They were so bright and nice and made the car look newer. After a while the brake dust made them look hyperblack/grey. I rode around like that for a while but it seemed to always surprise me after the car wash that the car looked new again . I was always happy to see them bright again. So just think of the car would look like with dirty rims. If you can handle the darker dirty version of the rims when a car wash is not available ( winter) then I would say go for it.

Actually, I have Space Gray car - found that Gunmetal, Hyper Black, Anthracite, or what some call Formula Silver, look the best with the car over Hyper Silver.

And yes, the brake dust is much less visible when using the darker color rims over the silver.

I never liked matte/gloss Black wheels on any color car other than white...
