I'd do black. My opinion, though. I only like red when the wheels are black (on a black car). BTW, think you could post a side view of your 7 with the rims?

I would vote for black because it looks good and is low maintenece, silver looks good but your wheels dont give you much of a gap to get in and wipe them down once and a while. IMO red looks ricer unless they are expensive aftermarket brakes.

If I were going to go through the trouble I think I would go with Red or Yellow, colors that will show.

I think black would look best, but I would have to agree with JoeBMW here if I was gonna go through the trouble I would do a color that stands out a bit...

I'd probably go with black. That's my next project and I'm between black and silver. It think the silver would look close to the factory coating and I'm OK with that. I think the other colors that stand out especially red are just saying "I wish I had Brembos".
