What color wheel looks best on Alpine White?

I'm trying to determine what color wheels to get and the problem I am having is deciding between Silver or Anthracite Arc 8. Goal is OEM+

Only wheel choice is the ARC 8 but open to suggestions or examples on an Alpine White E46.

My car in question

2004 330 M-Tech 1 in Alpine White w/ Natural Brown Leather by Brandon Smith, on Flickr

Thoughts?

I'd get either anthracite or hypersilver on alpine white. IMO hyperblack doesn't look good on AW, and black is kind of tacky to me.

So between those, if you are going for a more aggressive look (ie, you are going to get a lower it, mtech II, etc.) i'd do anthracite. Otherwise hypersilver (which it sounds like you are leaning towards since you said OEM look)

Black isn't an option as I'm not a fan either. It will be lowered but only enough to close the wheel gap. Roads where I'm at are relatively good but my driveway is up a mountain....Literally and approach angle way too steep for a considerable amount of drop.

H&R Cup Kit will provide just enough drop for me and I should be okay pulling in and out of my driveway.

I am a huge fan of red wheels on white cars.
