I think if you blacked out the window trim and your grills, the diamond black would flow.

Otherwise, I would go with silver.

1 Great point. Look at wheeldudes pics for different wheel colors. The brighter wheels pop on the blue. Zoeb has the new Linea Corse on his E92 in bright silver and smoked chrome and the look awesome. Darker colors look more menacing as opposed to classic....IMO.

Good luck. It's a tough, personal decision.

I went with Hyperblack wheels and will have pics up soon. IMO, the car must have black window trim, kidney grills, lower grill, and tint.
SICK!

I have the same color and want the same rims, but waiting till the spring. Leaning towards silver.

OP, pics please once you've decided and mounted.

Thanks for all your comments. I decided on Diamond Black. They arrived yesterday are even more beautiful than I expected. And wonderfully light.

Thanks to Eric at Supreme Power for the great deal, for the thorough way they were packed, and for the affordable shipping to Canada.

I can't wait for spring!

Definitely not the black ones. The silver will look just like the BMW wheels of days gone by that were of that style you have pictured. That would not be a bad thing.

I for one will not rue the passing of the black wheel fad.

I think they look good. And so do the wheels.

What do you think?

Lol. Nevermind, I just saw your post of purchase. Good choice!
