Hey Beemer crew!

Amongst all the chaos in the world this probably falls into insignificance!

But I need your opinion!

I recently refurbished my 20" wheel (tyre company damaged them) from oem silver to bmw ferric grey. However I'm now in two minds since it feels too dark especially on a back car.

UK weather isn't always the best so this combination remains dull most of time. I'm now considering going back to oem silver and play it safe!

Anyone been in a similar situation before?

Honestly consider bronze. Completely changes the look of the car

Between solving the COVID crisis and commenting on your wheel color, (colour), I chose the latter. I think the gray, (grey), looks great on this color combo. The silver is a dime a dozen, better to have something that stands out and also looks a little more aggressive.

GGill, I tend to agree with you. My 20" rims are the original BMW silver painted finish and I love them like this. From your pick I don't mind the graphite colour, looks nice, but when I first looked I immediately thought hmm the wheels look a bit dull and dirty i.e. like when you've driven for a week in the rain... I get what you mean...if it were me id constantly think they looked dirty or very 'brake dusted' too...

I like them on a dark color car. I also like the oem color too.
