Wheel Color: Apline White / Saddle Brown

I'm pledged for the 17" ARC-8 group buy and am undecided on color.

What does everyone think I should go with for my Alpine White E90 with Saddle Brown interior?

I'm planning on very simple exterior modifications, a simple lip spoiler and maybe a lip, black or carbon for both.

Hyper Silver: Can't really go wrong, especially with contrasting black or carbon accents.

Hyper Black: Looks a little richer than Hyper Silver, but maybe too many colors going on.

Satin Black: I like the white / black in theory, but it's never very striking on the road as the wheels just sort of disappear into the wheel wells.

Thoughts?

What widths/tires will you be running? I think ARC-8 in Satin Black are sexy, but only in aggressive sizing (#meat). Hyper Silver is so classy and would definitely work well with a white w/black accents color scheme.

17x9 +30, likely with 255/40's.

I'm definitely leaning towards Hyper Silver. Classy and understated.

I agree, Hyper Silver is the way to go! Shameless plug of my last 335i on 18":

+1 for the h/s. Hyper black is a little busy but still okay. Satin black looks like dipped wheels soon as they get a little dirty.

That's a fair point about Satin Black. Thanks.

Agree with the hyper silver. You will love them on your color combo

Do you have tint? If not, I think dark bronze would be a nice touch/compliment to the saddle brown.

Silver. I have dakota brown in my AW sedan and I really like the look of silver with the color combo.

I like the look, also reduced rotational and unsprung weight, along with more tire choices that are significantly less expensive than their 18" counterparts.
