Which Wheel finish is Best for Alpine white ?

Hi there

,What do you guys/gals think looks best on Alpine White ,I think black looks good e , but gloss black , flat black , black chrome , cleared black so many blacks out there ???????


Im thinking of going with HRE they have a few different blacks inc a black powder coat , i need some pics please of black wheels on alpine white

Also i have a wheel guy here local , i suppose he should be able to paint a wheel black if i order high polish but can he strip a black wheel and go high polish ?
what do you guys think of this wheel on M3 ?: 890 R

I finally ordered some matt black breyton gts race 19s yesterday. Matt black for me looks less flash and more purposeful which is the look I wanted for the M.

I test drove an M3 white with schnitzer 19" rims, and the gloss black looks was awful IMO, satin or matt would look miles better.

These rims

and they looked nasty.

Yeah Agree a flat like matt would be ideal , what do you think of black chrome finish ? Ithink it might look good with the CF

I prefer the look of a GT race car that has been running for 12 hours at LeMans. Meaning I like the heavy brake dust look, so it's a matt finish for me, the M3 looks purposeful with the 18" alloys when matched with light colours but the 19" look well with the darker colours.

Yep, I ordered flat black wheels for my AW coupe. I think it will be the best looking finish. I'll make sure and post pics as soon as they come in.

I'm thinking of ordering them as well. Let me know what you think of them when they come in. What tire and tire size did you get? Please take many pics and do post them here for us.

I ordered Michelin PS2s in exactly the same sizes as the OEM 19s. I debated the Cup+ but in the end as my 18s have PS2s on and they are spot on I decided to go for PS2s again.

no chrome, no gloss black. whatever it is has to be matte. i prefer gunmetal, matte black, silver. no gloss, no shine, no santa-ana style shit. definitely no spinners either

for tires get PS2's or Eagle F1's
