Good looking alloys, good looking car and black looses the definition in the design. They just look hollow to me. The darkest I like are gun metal, they can look great on certain colours.

Its personal preference so I would do what you want and what makes you happy.

Wheels give focal points to a car and provide a visual reference for the car's "stance". A lot of other elements of the cars shape are similarly defined by reference to the wheels (overhangs, wheelbase, visual CofG etc). The problem with black wheels on a black car is that these reference points don't stand out enough from the background to generate all of the above naturally.

Still, if you like them, what do I know?
