Wheels for crimson red

Thinking of getting a pair of vmr710 or vmr718 for my crimson red 135i but idk what color. Thinking either black, gun metal, or hyper silver. Don't want it to be too dark but dark enough to match my black kidney grills. Does anyone have pics? What's your opinions? Thanks

I don't have pics, but gunmetal seems to fit your description nicely. Not too dark(Black) but not light(silver)

These are gunmetal I believe, although they look dark because its darker outside.



If you search, you should be able to find lots of crimson red 1 series with gunmetal or black wheels. Personal preference really. I don't like completely black wheels because they hide the brakes and also the design of the rim too much.

Kinda what I'm thinking. Gun metal might have to be the color! Any recommendations on the offsets for vmr?

Get the et45 front and et50 rear if you are lowering and don't want any rub! Gunmetal FTW!!

Crimson Red does not show up well in pics, unless you boost the color. I wish there were more examples of our color on this site.
