I picked Morr wheels because they are amazing value. They look similar to the P40 but would be much less $$. I personally think they are one of the nicest wheels available.

Where is the pic of the Morr option?

HRE 590RS for sure!

Wheels that are single piece Matte Black visually get lost in the wheel well with the tire/shadows. A polished lip helps break separate this area visually and will be much easier to photograph, should you ever wish to take photos.

My choice would be the HRE P40SC but I'd recommend going with a brushed or even tinted brushed finish. Black or satin black tend to hide the details of most wheels.

On a black car maybe, but on a white car I tend to disagree. The contrast between black and white is what makes it work. You don't necessarily want it broken up by a chrome lip.
