Refinishing and powder coating wheels; what color?

Hey guys so I've curbed a few wheels and I figured it was time to fix them up. So naturally I'm considering changing the color. My first two choices are gloss black and hyper black/ gun metal I suppose. my car is Singapore gray. I always appreciate the opinion of my fellow members. Let me know what you guys think would compliment the SG well. TYIA

I think the 20s in gloss black would look nice

Or gloss black with machined face. Would look best on a pair of P4X line HRE's, but might look good on the M5 wheels as well. I always liked the machine face look on grey cars.

Can't go wrong with black though.

But it's not really grey.. It's Singapore Grey Metallic. I have it and too me it's almost a dark aqua green. I've also wondered what a black or dark hyper silver wheel would look like. I still think CPI guy did it best with his HREs..
