Just opinions on wheels (gloss or matte finish)

You can see my truck in the avitar. I am up in the air as to weather to go with a black matte or gloss black finish on my new wheels. I have not many around here to see witch looks better. I am personally leaning towards the gloss finish since the truck is black. Any comments or pics would be greatly appr.

If you like cleaning your rims alot, I guess gloss. Which looks great. IMO, powdercoat matte black. Just rinse and go.

I'd keep it as is... but if I had to make the choice I'd say gloss.
