What color wheels for a platinum grey metallic 535?

Hey I am buying a '08 535xi tomorrow in Platinum Grey Metallic with Black interior. I was hoping for some posts and especially some pics of Platinum grey 5 series with rims. I am going to put 19" rims on it, but i don't know the best color? Black (matte or gloss), Gunmetal, Silver? HELP!!

Matte black will look bad a$$ and set your car apart from the rest.
