Smoke chrome e90 OEM 19's?

Sorry no pics (yet) but wanted a bit of feedback from you guys.

Last week I bought a scruffy set of OEM 19" E9X M3 wheels to put winter tyres on. They are straight and in pretty good condition except for a fair bit of kerb rash on 3 out of 4.

Do you think they will look good in a smoked chrome finish as per the pic below? (colour, not wheel style)

If not, any other suggestions.




Or do I save myself 300 and just fit the tyres to the wheels and not worry about marking them further over the winter.

Cheers,
Rich

I think silverstone looks best with lighter colored wheels. I have a smoke finish (Hyperblack) which I think looks good on black.

I vote for save the cash. If these are just for winter they probably will be constantly dirty. It may not even be that noticeable if you change the wheel color.
