The reason those cars look okay with bright colored wheels is because of a few things:

- you can't see the interior at all
- even if you could see the interior, you'd see that it's black which is the most neutral interior color possible

If your interior is a bright "Ferrari" red, then in no circumstances at all should you get colorful wheels. Best get over that thought right now, before you waste a ton of money.

Why not just sell them to someone as track wheels and move into gunmetal or brushed aluminum?

If you need them sprayed I'd either go gunmetal or with a semi-gloss black and a time attack stripe to match your interior. That way everything still works and doesn't clash horribly.

All I know is that if I had CB, I would have OEM 19's and love every minute of it. One of the best look stock rims ever from any manufacturer, and the M3 color that looks the best with them.

here are the two colors that look remarkable on carbon black (all others dont):

1. Gunmental
2. Silver

That's it. Looks like you already have silver so you're good.
