Opinion gold polished lip wheel on AW E90 M3

Hey guys,
I have a Alpine white with red leather E90 M3.
And looking around for some wheel for next summer.
Would gold spoked and polished lip wheel look to flashy on a E90 M3?
Like the Miro 368 gold.

I want something nice, but don't wanna look like a pimp ither.

I haven't seen any alpine white E90 M3 with gold w/ polished lip wheel yet, so don't know how it would look.

That could look real hot but if you do it, go with some Gold LMs. I would also do it in a mesh wheel, I am not a fan of the spoke design in gold.

I was also looking at these Linea Corse Z2S in gold or hyper black.

Maybe gold is a bit to much, I should maybe stay concervative on a sedan.

That hyper black is okay. Definite no on the gold

At least get authentic BBS wheels instead of knock-offs!

No chance I buy knock-offs. I'll make sure I buy from an authorized dealer, etc. Too important of a piece to the car in my opinion to take that risk

The only gold I like is from HRE.

20" gold C20s with polished steplip would look good. I had em in 19" on my E46 M3 and loved them. They looked sick.

It depends on the type of gold. Personally, I was thinking of doing the same thing, but I want more of a copper tone in the gold, rather than pale gold or mustard color.

Gold wheels

The gold thing may come back some day, but today is not it.
