What color wheels best for Sing Grey?

Have a Singapore Grey and have blacked out the side vents, front grill, and M badge with the IND goodies. Want to powder coat the original 20" wheels either satin black, glossy black to possible a gunmetal or similar dark gray? Would love to see any pics from anyone that has already done this or any advice/opinions. Thanks for any help.

My car's the same color and if I kept my OEM wheels, i WOULD LEAVE THEM STOCK. Trust me that the stock wheel color looks best on the SG car.

+1

I personally don't like dark/black wheels. I like the contrast the silver wheels provide.

If I had to do something to them, I would go with more of a brushed finish on the face and a darker tinted clear coat on top of everything

I'd go with matte graphite. I think the contrast would look nice.

Matte Satin Black goes Really well on Singapore Grey. I had to see it to believe it.
