* Need Opinions: Refinishing my DPE S-15's *

Hey guys,
I need some opinions. I'm refinishing my wheels and I wanted some opinions on what to do. Right now they have brushed faces and chrome lips.

But these are the new options that I'm considering:
- All polished lips w/brushed face
- Gloss black lips w/brushed face
- Gloss black lips w/matte gunmetal face
- Suggestions? (Indicate)

Here are some pics of the current set up:

Are you refinishing because you just want a change, or are the finish bad and needs to be refinished?

I like it as it is.

I kind of want a change, but a big reason why I'm refinishing is that one lip has a 1 inch curb rash and chrome can't be fixed using regular methods so I want to get all polished lips so I don't have to deal with the chrome thing anymore in the future.. So at the very least I'm going to replace all the lips with polished lips so they will be able to be repaired in the future (although I don't plan on messing them up)

But I want to know mainly if it will look better with gloss black lipa and brushed face or just all polished with brushed faces
