Best wheel color for MR?

Hi guys i'm thinking about getting a new set of wheels for my Melbourne red E92 M3, already had ZCP wheels,so i'm considering P43 or P45S from HRE, but don't know which finish matches melbourne red best? i've only seen gloss black in person , i'm considering satin black, textured black, or satin charcol, what do you guys think? Any suggestions?Thx

Im selling my 20" satin black p40's if you want a different set of HRE's

as far as satin charcoal and tinted charcoal i am not sure the difference. One might be dark and one might be light. Check the HRE website im sure they will have them both pictured there.

I already had ZCP wheels and i think they are identical to the P40s, so i'm looking at P43 or P45S.

I will always say go for black. HOWEVER. I do have a friend with a melbourne red M3 with painted WHITE Hre's. Let me tell you it grows on me SO MUCH. especially if your car is lowered.

i dont know but black is the only way to go...

just one advise never get matte black... i know its not your selection... they look really bad after couple hundreds of miles of driving...

i went with semi gloss... but your selection of color are really good i dont think you can go wrong with any...


HERE IS MINE... ANY DARK WHEELS SHOULD LOOK GOOD... DONT GO LIGHT they are not good in any's eyes.. LOL

nah they are cheap avant garde wheels. semi gloss... they say matte but there a gloss hint to it compare to my old VMR wheels.

they are 19 and stock suspension... and your right black are too common.. i guess thats why im excited to see your new wheels. LOL
