The look is played out. The car needs some contrast. Chrome grills and gills FTW.

If I were in your shoes, I might paint the wheels another color like white, or something else that has lots of contrast. OR, just keep it the same, I think it looks good... Nice car!

I like the blacked out look, but after owning a blacked out car for 2 years im tired of it. I recently changed to hyperblack rims and couldnt be happier with my decision.

What he said. I own a CB M3 also and recently put HyperBlack Arcs on and I feel this is the best rim color for CB. I feel Blacked out can be done the right way and look good. But for contrast with this rare color the Hyperblacks are awesome!
