Guys, please note that even BMW make some glossy/chrome 20" rims for the F10!
Pity is that their only "real" chrome rim (style 311, chrome version) is just plain hideous and reminds too much those fine stereotype examples in CaliAgents' post above

IMHO on a dark car with many chrome parts (grille, exhaust tips, badges, windows trim!!!, badges, side indicators, etc.), some chrome on the rims might actually work well. However subtlety is the key, especially to avoid associations with above atrocities. If I was after such a "subtle" option, I guess those style 410 Bicolor would be my favorites from BMW:
