Powder coating wheels for 2012 x5 sports activity

I have a 2012 Sports Activity Package X5. The exterior color is platinum grey (dark gray). I plan on powder coating my wheels next week. I'm torn between white, black, or dark gray (to match the color of my car). If anyone has pictures or advice, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

You have a brother named Jackie?

If I was you I plasti dip them so that in case you have second thoughts you can still make changes. Plus it will be A LOT cheaper.

Powder coating wheels for 2012 x5 sports activity

Go black IMO. Will look good, especially if you have blacked out kidney grilles

Powder coating wheels for 2012 x5 sports activity

I have the same PG color with the 20" and if I were to change I would go with black. I bought the 20's because the stock grey looked good against the PG with the chrome kidneys. Definitely not white.
