Which OZ wheels?

Debating between the OZ Ultraleggera in silver or black, or the Alleggerita in anthracite. Hard finding pics of 1ers with them, but I'm leaning towards the silver ultraleggeras (my car is jet black). What do you guys think?

Pics in order are: Alleggerita in Anthracite, Ultraleggera in silver, Ultraleggera in black

if I have to choose, for JB, I would go w/ Ultraleggera in black.
If I have another choice, I would consider forgestar, csl gunmetal as well.

Can you upload pics of your car? I haven't been able to find many pics of black cars with the silver ultraleggeras.

Yea they're all about the same price ($350 a wheel on tirerack)

I've found pics of a black 335 with the black ultraleggeras:


This was originally a red 135i with black ultraleggeras but someone photoshopped the car into jet black:


And a post of someone's 123d hatch with the anthracite Alleggeritas, but 17's not 18's:

I'd go with the silver. Black on black is too played out.

Yea I know, I'm gonna roll my fenders and be done with it. No matter what wheel I get, I'm going with fatter tires and the car is lowered so I'm gonna have to roll no matter what.

Thanks for those pics, your car looks sweet. I think you may have solidified my choice of silver ultraleggeras.

Its too bad 18in Alleggerita offsets don't work well, otherwise they would be on my car right now.

scorcherjf, those are 17s.

I know they're 17s, but I was referring to the finish. It isn't as "shiny" as the tirerack picture. Maybe it was just the weather or the wheels were dirty in that pic.

I'm gonna have my fenders rolled anyway since I'll have a little thicker tires than stock.

I know your set on the silver and you probably don't care what I think but IMO I think black is real nice on those rims.

The OZ offsets work great in the front. The rears stick out beyond the fender tho.

I tried to make this work a few months ago.
