Challenge gold matt exterrior and a good 19s wheel setup

Basically what the title says, I'm in the market for a new wheel setup for the coming summer and just can't decide wich color route to choose...
What complements a matte gold exterrior paint job?
Flat black maybe?
Wich color would let the brake discs stand out as they kind of looked lost and almost invisible comparing the look with my old 20's setup?

All these little modbug's that itch lol, hope that someone of you guy's really can help. Here's a picture of the car for those of you that have these mystery photoshop skills.
Only 19s should be considered!

Thank's girls and guy's!

Don't know of any. HRE probably. Think black would look best but you could go wild also.

Thought about matte black, too.
I'm curious if someone could photoshop some 19's OZ formulas on my car in matte black, that would be really cool.

What do you look for in a wheel setup? Functional or only aesthetics?

Tons of pics on the web with different wheel combos (mostly non-M3). Looks like most went flat or satin black. Gunmetal also looked decent.

Tinted or brushed brown might look okay.

HRE does tinted or brushed finishes and have seen a few brown sets that look cool. With gold might be okay.
