Hey guys/gals, so as the title says, should I keep my wheels the stock anthracite grey color or should I powdercoat them gloss black? I have a great shop in Brooklyn that I work with that can do them for me. I actually went to drop off the car Monday morning to have the work performed and the guy at the shop talked me out of it. He said he thought they look good as is. So I got nervous and just left! I was wondering what you all thought? Thanks!

unless you can provide a picture with the gloss black, i would say keep it stock. It looks fantastic the way it is.
Same as Tommy ... it looks great as it is...

@masspark99 was nice enough to shoot me a picture of his 21's in gloss black. Here is the picture of his wheels:

Personally I love black. I would say don't put permanent powder coat on the wheels as it may cause problems for you when it's time to sell your vehicle. All dealers prefer to buy cars with OEM wheels.
I would suggest put plasti dip gloss black coating on the wheels instead and take it off when you no longer wants black or ready to sell. It's very easy to take off and will be much cheaper for you.
Here is a picture of gloss black plasti dip wheel. Hope this helps.

I would say go matte black to give contast..gloss on gloss is too much. I also have a matte silver CTS-V and went gloss black on the rims and looks fantastic with the contrast. Just a differ thought.

That's a thought also! I had gloss black on my metallic black Z4 and it looked pretty great. (But that matte silver must look incredible)!.

I like the stock, however if you're looking for individuality then the Matt black is the way to go.

Okay fellas, I hate to do this but at the expense of possibly disappointing the thirteen people who said to stay stock, the mod itch came and I had to scratch it. Only four people may like this so I'm prepared for some negative feedback. They really did come out amazing and the car looks incredibly menacing now. Here's a quick teaser since I just got the car back and it's already dark out:

I think that's the way to go. Can we get a pic with the Nero Ghibli and the gloss black wheels? Please. Thanks

Nice!

Now you just need some black bolts or black bolt covers.
