Wheel color options for Silver Stone Metallic II?

I'm getting ready to put some new shows on the M3 and want something different. Current wheels are black, so interested in something else. Obviously silver doesn't interest me either. I've been thinking of a darker blue for the subtle look or something extreme like an orange.

Anybody have pics of or ideas for other unique wheel colors for ths SSII? In my opinion, its the hardest color of M3 cars to match wheels to. Blacks, Blues, Reds, Whites I can name a handful of wheel colors that would look great, not so much for this color.

Any help is appreciated.

Orange is nice but I would go with a dark blue. Done.

Yeah I thought a UNC or sky blue, but the SSII is light so I think a light colored wheel wouldnt contract the way a pretty wheel needs to. Please post pics if you have any.

Thanks.

Magnesium Blue TE-37s would've been my second choice.

i think OEM (silver or black) finish ZCP wheels look the best on SSII.

Gunmetal or brushed finish get my vote.
Gunmetal if you want to go aggressive
Brushed if you want to stay classy

here is my car with the bavarian blue (baby blue)

thinking about going silver or black but not sure what color of each I would do just yet. I am not going to lie in person the color works very well with the car, just not into being flashy so that is why I am changing the color

also here is my friend SSII with Mag Volks, not too sure if I like it

WOW. That is pretty loud, but I still like it. Wonder how matte sky blue would look? 3 piece wheels with Matte sky blue centers with gloss black barrels?

Brushed gunmetal without a doubt would look clean and your M3 an aggressive style. I don't think a solid bright colour goes well with SSII but then again haven't seen many.

Keep it classy. HRE's in brushed tinted clear or BBS in Diamond Black get my vote.

Silver, Gunmetal, or Black. This is an M3, not a Porsche/clown car.

Here is the same car above that was posted. Pictures do not do it justice IMO.

We also just installed a new Arkym hood and challenge trunk recently on it and plan to take our own photos very soon.



Now if i wanted unique finish on my SSII, I would go with the red theme. Some red TE37SL wheels then get the performance spoiler with a subtle CRT line in red to match. We even have the red TE37SL in stock.

I personally have brushed aluminum on my SSII E90 M3 however.

Yeah I was thinking red for a minute, but I decided orange would look better if wild was what you were after. I'm dying to see an ssii on orange wheels!!

Post one up if anyone has a pic of one!

I'd go with some type of really glossy gunmetal or like Singletrack's X5 wheel (grey from Ferrari color).

Not my style, but orange might work too, depends on your interior color.
