(Pic Request) OEM Z4M Wheels finished in gun metal or similar

The previous owner of my car did a poor/cheap job refinishing the OEM wheels and over my 2 years of ownership, the wheels have flaked and peeled to the point where I cant stand it anymore. I would just say F it and purchase aftermarket wheels, but the wheels I want (TE37) are out of my budget right now until end of summer/fall. In this case, I decided I would just refinish the wheels and use them until then. The current dilemma is if I should go OEM silver or a metallic gun metal/orbit gray.

Are there any pictures of a color similar to those on OEM wheels on preferably a black M coupe? If the car is lowered that would help even more.

Thanks!

Stockers in graphite metallic with matte clear finish - 15mm front and 12mm rear H&R Spacers … perfectly flush

UPDATED ... changed to Satin Black ... looks even better as the hubs and the brakes now "pop" a lot more!

Those look great! The Z4M really does have some of the nicest stock wheels out there.

Agree! In stock finish they are nice but done in anthracite they are stunning!

How long does that paint last before it starts peeling?

I've had it on for about a year now and the paint hasn't started peeling as yet... i did go over the anthracite with a Clear Spray paint to protect it.

Thanks, I will look into this brand then. I sprayed a set of winter wheels w/some cheap paint and the silver color started flaking off on my gloves while I was putting on the wheels for the first time.
