Yay or Nay: Style 172 19" OEM Wheels on an F30?

What do you think of these wheels on the F30? I have a black car so I think it would look somewhat better as the polished silver color of the wheel (and all those spokes) would contrast nicely with a dark color like black. Also, my car will be lowered.

The wheels are: 19x8.5 (18mm offset) & 19x9.5 (32mm offset). With a 275 rear wheel, do you think there would be issues with rubbing with a drop?

Nay. Not as aesthetically pleasing as some other options, IMO. Theres too much going on with all those spokes.

On a side note. Those will be a B***** to clean.
