    Personally I would'nt paint them black,id go for something like gloss grey or anthracite.On some wheels black just hides the details.i went for gloss grey over black and im happy i did.

    i'd perhaps go a touch lighter than that tho - kinda like what your wheels look like when they've got a light coat of brake dust on them
