    Assuming it's a solid black gloss powder? If so, that will be the most durable finish you can get. If I need to refinish my dark gray 21s in the future I'll do glossy black powder too. It's less costly than paint followed by a powder clear.

    Too dark. Looks like you're driving on 4 holes.

    It looks better in the flesh. The camera doesn't do it justice.

    I like it. I have a white as well and I think the black wheels look great on it. Do they make them in 19s? I would like to avoid the loss of range, pothole issues, and tire longevity loss.

    Not feeling it. So overdone in my mind. Prefer silver of the greys.

    From a practicality standpoint they will be difficult to keep clean, on top of all the other negatives of the 21 inch wheels.
