Imola Red what color rims?

I have been thinkin of what rims I should get for my imola red X5, but one thing I keep on thinking about is what color/shade should the rims be. Especially lookin at some DPE rims, they come in so many shades and colors I have no clue what would look the best.


Either like dark grapphite, or pure black, or maybe just normal alloy like any other rim.

Suggestion anyone. Pics would be awesome! Mostly I am lookin at DPEs, Iforged, and Maya rims.

Ex: I like these
but dunno if that "graphite color" will look good on a red car. PLEASE HELP lol

22" DPE R16 in phantom black would look sick on your X5

Iforged Swifts would look hot in a brushed finish. Also some Dpe's with a chrome shadow finish w/ brushed lip would look pretty sick too.

Ever consider getting your stocks powder-coated Imola Red? Cleaning would be an issue, but if you're anal enough.......I think it would be a unique look. in a good way.
