Black rims in matte or high gloss finish

Hi everybody,

I am getting my original 20" wheels painted in black within 2 weeks, do you have any photos of black wheels in a matte, satin or high gloss finish on a black car?

Thanks!

I think gloss black will look the best. Debating if I should powdercoat mine as well.

I vote high gloss black, unless you are going wrap your car matt black.....

But then, there is also BMW Liquid Black, or black chrome

I'm going to paint mine gloss black as well. But first I'm gonna plasti dip them to see if I like it or not. Plasti dip now offers a gloss coat you can put on to make it shine.

IND did a couple of photo shoots of my car ("Haute M"). Its an Alpine White convertible with Gloss Black wheels (BMW painted the original M wheels).

I chose to do a gloss black finish because there is gloss black trim already on the car (around windows etc).

You can find photos and such at the following two links:

I chose flat/satin black on my HRE's---- the main reason is gloss becomes ugly with the BMW brake dust within a few stops. Gloss reminds me of a black car, looks great right after the wash but that ends shortly.

Sorry its not a black car.

I've always preferred the wet look of the Gloss back finish...

Thank you all for your comments and photos, I have chosen to paint them gloss black. Wheels are currently at the paintshop but will post a photo when fitted them back again. Cheers!
