Style 230 wheels in black?

What are your guys' thoughts on plastidipping or powdercoating style 230 wheels in black? Are they better off in the original color on a black car?
Only pic I could find is http://www.e90post.com/forums/attach...1&d=1292980240
thanks

Why don't you plastidip them gloss black at first. See how it looks on your car and if you like it. If you do.. Then get them powder coated black

They look incredible!

Gloss black does add a hint of class to it, matt black just shouts "look I rattle canned my wheels" - In my head anyways!
