Depends on what you like. Personally, I dont like something that screams aftermarket so any sort of black/gold wheel is out for me. IMO you can never go wrong with plain ol silver.

I wouldn't go any darker than gunmetal.....black doesn't allow any of the wheel detail to show through IMHO

i like black wheels on a lot of colors but on a black car i like either regular gray or the color that comes on the 135i performance wheels. i actually love that color, the m3 has that color on upgraded wheels as well

Kidding aside the color that wheels are when covered in brake dust (my 135 is new so the wheels have gotten really dusty from the new pads) is a pretty good tone similar to gunmetal which would look great.
