Pics of new color match valve stems!

Just wondering what you guy think of the color matched valve stems vs. the standard silver. Gives it that "finishing" touch. What do you guys think?

Set of Avant Garde M359 in Matte Black.

They look OK. I'm intrigued by that wheel color. It's called matte black, but is it really black, or would it be comparable to anthracite or hyper black or Diamond Black on other brands?
