Advise please? Wheels what color should i do?

So i have the OEM factory 19s which are polished two tone wheels.
I have a set of brushed clears that are sitting in my house soon to be mounted.

I also picked up another set which are matte color, new as well. However, i am planning on getting them painted either satin black or matte black.

Which route should i go and your thoughts please?

Pix to be up soon within weeks once the wheels are done.

Thanks in advanced.

also, would be open to suggestion.

Red would be nice. I think you should go for it. I am also leaning towards Satin as I have matte black on the SUV and keeping it clean is PITA.

I vote for satin.

I actually think you need some more wheels so you don't need to decide!

What about a reverse of the stock? Graphite inside with black outside?
