Hey guys,

I'm finally going to be getting some wheels for my car. What colour wheels would best suit an arctic silver e36, silver or gun metal?

Silver is a safe bet, not sure if gunmetal will give it a nice contrast or just look plain ugly.

Any feedback is welcome.

Thanks

both those colours work, but it also really depends on the style of rim, what rim do you have in mind?

those rims would work in any colour, but I personally like the gun metal finish, it also doesn't show brake dust as much.

Are your windows tinted? If so, then Gunmetal would be pulled off nicely while adding good contrast to your car's silver paint. I wouldn't get the silver finish, it looks too bland on the CSLs.

I have Hyperblack on my CSLs and LOVE it. Then again, my car is Schwarz and has a blackout theme running.

Here are a couple quick pics I photoshopped . . . keep in mind I don't know how to use photoshop . . .

Also thinking of adding a red time attack strip . .not 100% sure how good it will look though, but it's removable if I don't like it.

I think I like the contrast with the gun metal, then again, I don't know how accurate the colour on those wheels are either.

Looks like silver seems to be winning. . .
