Rim advice?

Howzit guys, I want to paint my rims (the M sport rims). I don't really like the matte black or just the normal black, I think it is to harsh in a way... I was thinking like a space grey? Would that look nice? Anyone have pics? My 135i is white BTW. Then my other idea was like a matte black with a white outer bit? What do you guys think? What would you guys do if you wanted to paint your rims?
Much appreciated

Try painting it with this stuff called Plastidip, I'm not sure if you can get it in SA but it's cheap enough and if you don't like it you can always peel it off.

It's 100% reversible and the results are amazing.

I would personally go with a Matte Anthracite type finish. Im sure a local powder coater can find a similar finish to Space Grey for you.
