I went with Hyperblack and love them





Even after driving on the highway over 700 miles my Hyperblack CSLs look like this

The silvers look good when clean but if you use OEM brake pads or any that dust then the silver wheels begin to look bad imho. With Hyperblacks, they still look good when they have dust on them.

BMWSonora, you sir are correct The window tints on both my ///M and 330i ZHP are at 35%. This is the darkest that I can get away with up here in Rhode Island. As you can see, the tint does look good...

Thanks for the complements Justin

@OP, if done right you can make the black look really good on TiAG... I get complements all the time

Wow I really love how it looks on your car. What else would I need to do to my car if I did in fact get the hyperblack?

What size wheels and tires did you go with? I'm planning on getting the same setup and I am on stock suspension.

depends on what your car's "theme" is. If it's silver and black theme, then i'd say do the hyperblack. If you wanna be more oem+/cleaner look, then get the silver.

This is an old thread and OP already got his wheels.
But I can't resist adding my .02
I don't like hyperblack because to me it looks like compromise. I would always choose between black (really black) or silver.

I just went with VMR's recomennded fitment. Don't like the poke/stretched tire look. They are 19x8.5 E40 with 235/35 tires in the front, and 19x9.5 ET45 with 265/30 tires in the rear. No rubbing what so ever even with 3 people in the back seat!




Yeah already got my wheels. And I couldn't be happier with my decision. I like the clean silver look much better than if I would have gone with black. If I went with black, there would have been many more mods I would have to do to make it work!
