Question Looking to swap my OEM Silver 214's with OEM Gloss Black 214's or OEM Style 336 wheel

Hi Members,
As the title says I want to change the look on my AW X5 to more aggressive. Please hit me up if anybody is interested.

Also I would really appreciate if all you people with AW X5 who have black or Gun metal/Grey/ferric OEM painted/powder coated 20" wheels please share your pictures that might help me make my decision.

Adding some pictures (I hope members who own these won't mind)

I just had my 214 powder coated black but with 20% to 30% gloss so it's not flat black but not satin black just in the middle! I have to check with my powder guy.

Just put OEM 336 on my alpine white X5 with M-sport package. Very satisfied. Was thinking of going black 214 first but I think I would have gotten tired of those pretty quickly.

I've been itching for a new look from 214s to 336, but after looking at these side by side I still like the 214s.

I am also in the same boat.. can't really go wrong with 214's..
I think it's now the silver or gloss black 214's..

Reckon 214s look dated, would prefer 336s as it has better contrast and look more aggressive.

I'm on the same boat regarding colored wheels. I was first leaning towards glossy black but after my recent Bimmer meetup here in MN, I like the matte look more than the glossy black look. With that being said, I was about to pull the trigger on powder coating my OEM wheels.....then I learned about plastiDip.

I will probably go the plastidip route in the next month so watch for a new thread!
