Best Color Wheels (rims) on Carbon Black ?

As the title suggests, what do you think are the best color wheels for a carbon black M3? Matte Black, Gunmetal, Hyperblack or Silver/Chrome?

I'm currently running OEM 19" and they look just fine, but I was thinking about getting the 19" HyperBlack CSL's from ModBargains. What color of the wheels (rims) do you think would look best with the carbon black paint?

Another question, what's a good brand of wheels to get for around $1000 with a 'Lip' ? I like the looks of the CSL but they don't have a lip

this is exactly the problem i'm having... which ones of the black (hyper, matte or gunmetal) go best with the carbon black? my car is pretty blacked out with the black tints, painted reflectors and black front grill.... i'll get smoked corners soon too and eventually some smoked leds

btw, id get the smoked lamin x to put over the smoked lighting bc the smoked LEDs and corners arent very dark.

Black wheels do not suit Carbon Black. Especially when the sun is on the car, doesn't look right as the paint is purple/blue and the wheels are black. Normal silver is the best colour!
