I like both, will you use a matte or gloss black or something inbetween? I'm thinking of painting mine as well, and since we have the same car, just different color..... I'll let you do it first and see the results! hahaha

I say "yay" on the black wheels, but only if you're going to have them clearcoated. Another set of spraycanned or matte black wheels is tiresome in my opinion. I also, don't find powdercoated gloss black to be quite as wet and attractive looking as clearcoat.
