What powder coat color for alpine white e90 rims?

Post your pics noting the rim color. Need to choose a finish for my zip rims. Want to see some

I'm thinking of PCing my wheels white.

Or two tone, white on the exterior side of each spoke and black on the sides of the spoke and inner part of the wheel.

Ok bad start. I should have said I'd officially eliminated any black finish and can't go with white cos I personally think the car will be, er, too white. Would also like to avoid heavy Matt colors and absolutely no chrome, light silvery finishes.

Was thinking maybe diamond graphite, gun metal, dark satin bronze even. Has anyone done these or something similar with pics?

Really appreciate the advice.

Metallic anything on white. I would get a dark red if I had white. It turns colors depending on the angle you look at it but usually looks black unless under directly sunlight.

I like mine...but to each their own

I don't have ZCP but I PC my 220M Metallic Anthracite with no clear coat (so supposedly matte) but can't get too much matte with a metallic paint I guess. haha

Going with Umbra Grey to match the carbon fiber on the exterior and complement the silver novillo interior:



Anyone have rims powder coated this color?
