I am thinking about getting my stock wheels refinished in black. However, not sure if I should go for matte or gloss or some other black finish.

My outside trim is pretty much all gloss (front grilles, side gills, etc.)

What are your thoughts? Any pics of space gray with matte stock wheels?

If it's just your stock wheels....I think gloss might look better, since all your other aesthetics are gloss black already, but this is such a subjective topic.

hot pink will attract the ladies :)

Other black finish = textured. Not sure how that would look on stock. Only seen used on centers in matte but the barrel normally is glossy or satin smooth finish

I like that colour....do you have paint code or anymore info on the paint you used?
thanks, no paint code. this was a custom mix at the paint shop near me. the problem with that is when I get a scrape, its going to be hard to match

Definitely unique but I can't stand chrome.

Well I wouldn't call it chrome and was just providing ideas. Did you take a look at the pics on the car as the fluorescent lights pickup the chrome. Real life they are black with a hint of chrome. Get complements all the time makes the space gray pop and compliments the metallic in the paint!

Cheers!

Black chrome looks great. For me, gloss black over matte black any day.
