Best Color Wheels for Space Gray?

I've been looking for pics of space gray Ms with aftermarket wheels and haven't found much. What colors go well with SG? Gray/Gunmetal wheels just seem a bit flat on SG. How does black look?

Post pics if you can!

depends on how you plan to mod the car.
black wheels if you want an agressive look.
brushed/silver if you want a classy look.

its as simple as that.

Brushed with black window like the 20" HRE P40 on Anup's Project 808 E92 M3 would look awesome.

I was thinking the brushed, and black finishes would look good. I think the polish on the OEM 19s look good too.
