19" rims painted alpine white?????

the black rims look great on the alpine white m3.. but i wanna see a pic with the 19" painted white to match the car. I think that would look really good but im too scared to try it before i see it first.

I think it might be hard to make that look good unless you are rick ross.

I definitely wouldn't do it... and although I like black rims, on the white car it makes it look just a bit too much like a racecar to me, seems to lose a little of the class a BMW has. I like the idea of gunmetalling that sounds interesting. I think it would've been cool if the 19" rims weren't polished aluminum, but maybe brushed aluminum, something a little less shiny.

would you really want to maintain white wheels? The 19's are a pain to clean as is.

I was thinking the same thing. Powdercoat, or paint? I'm afraid that paint will chip.
