What color wheels looks good on Alpine White???

I finally picked my favorite wheel design but now i'm stuck on a color choice.

Any Alpine White owners have pics of their colored wheels? I was thinking gloss black but every photo I find on google looks like crap. I'm guessing the white of the car throws the camera's internal light meter to underexpose the car while further underexposing the black wheels. Basically, all black wheels & tire lacks detail in the pics in this high contrast setup.

Really deciding between: Glossy Black, 30% Matte Black, Anthracite (gray), or chrome.

Here is my vehicle with stock 20":

Here are the 22" wheel choice shown in gloss black (Forged Mono Block):
