BBS CH-R: Silver or Black for Interlagos Blue Coupe

Guys,
Just asking opinions on what color (silver or black) BBS CH-R for an Interlagos Blue Coupe. I keep coming back to this wheel for some reason. I really can't decide which color and I'm at the point if I should just go 2 black and 2 silver. Even though I love this wheel, I will miss having a decent size lip. Any other suggestions on wheels for the IB would be greatly appreciated.

Mike

Silver. Black looks ugly, and has the silver "edge" protector thing. I dislike black wheels anyway. And I really do think silver looks 10 times better on IB than black does, not to mention you can actually appreciate the wheel.

I would definitely go with silver for your car color.

Silver IMO works much better. I haven't seen many wheels that look good in black on IB.

Silver FOR SURE even if it was not IB. Not a fan of black wheels...hides all the details of the wheel.

I vote silver.

Have you considered the ZCP wheels? They are cheaper then the CH-R's but a bit heavier. I saw them on a frozen gray this week and they look great. Much bigger and concave in person.

I disagree....the contours and grooves stand out in black...however, with the body color of the OP's car...I would suggest silver as well!

Silver + Interlagos Blue = perfect marriage.

Although, the silver would be my favorite, the fact that the CH-R does have the Stainless steel rim protector, means that the distiction betwen tire, wheel and body of car would be clear and might actually work pretty well.

did i just make it worse for you? hee hee. I will try and find some pictures if I have any. Just don't have any IB M3 with Black CH-R but i do have something close.

Not the same car or wheels, but this might give you an idea of how black ones will look. My vote is for black.

For your IB M3 I'd say go with the Black Finish on the BBS CH-R!

I am getting the silver CHR's in silver for my IB coupe next week. I'll try to post up pictures for you as soon as I can. I'll be in Monterey for the summer concourse and Festorics and should have good pics from there as well.

Silver is going to be the conservative route. You need to have other mods in place to pull off black.
