    My Avatar shows a color combination I hope to get...

    Dark metallic gray paint with shiny gray wheels...

    Here are some pictures of some other cars that offer that look:

    There are a lot of dull gray wheels that don't look right. Looking for that titanium metallic finish with a bit of "glow".

    Not looking for a white car myself but I like the lighter shinier wheel example you showed on the first picture... The second one looks more black. Both of them are nice I suppose, but I would prefer dark shiny gray over shiny black.

    I will be going for smaller wheels and if the grey option is not available for Model 3 with smaller wheels then I will have them powder coated.
