What color should I powder coat 442m wheels for alpine white 335i?

The inevitable happened. 442m wheel corrosion!
At first I didn’t know what it was. I googled “white spots on bmw wheels” and found “white worm on alloy wheels”. Turns out what I have is corrosion and it’s pretty common to these wheels. Mine also started in the center like usual story, and is spreading. I want to address it as soon as possible to avoid too much damage to wheels. My car is not under warranty so I will have to pay out of pocket to fix this.
Now I’m thinking to get them stripped and powder coated.
What do you guys suggest which color I should go with since my car is alpine white? I want to do gloss black but that’s very common and will show dirt very easily.
My other choice would be satin black, matte black or gun metal.
Any other options/opinions?
Thanks in advance!

Thank you Sayzar and Chrism9852.

I’m also considering anthracite.
Wondering what others did for their alpine white f30.
