Nah, the spokes are too narrow - not enough light will reflect off of flat black, with gloss black you'll be able to see the wheels

P.S.
I just got a phone call from Rock 96.7
I just won two tickets plus backstage passes to see Hollywood Undead in Frisco on March 30th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bummer. That one sold, but I found a 2003 Orange EAP SVT with 79K miles for $6900. Should I jump on it?
