Canada What colour wheels would you choose?

Good morning folks from eastern Canada folks

I am looking at upgrading the whhels on my R53 2002 Cooper S and would like some input from the community.

My biggest problem so far is what colour to go with. The only thing I know is that I don't want to go with chrome.

Opus is dark silver with a white top, white stripes and checkered mirrors.

What colour would you go with and why? Black, graphite, white or silver finish?

I may also be going with a checkered vinyl roof. This would give Opus more black.

I was originally thinking black, but I'm not so sure anymore.
