Need some advice on painting wheels....

So I have the 19" OEM wheels and I think they are beautiful, but it doesn't look too good on my car, I removed all chrome and went with space gray and black all exterior, since I live in Guatemala, powdercoating doesn't exists here, so I was thinking about painting them matte black, since most dealers and shops are not familiar with this, neither am I, can someone explain me how the procedure for painting them matte black is, and if I don't like it will I be able to return to the original finish????? This is my car, what do you guys think??? thanks a lot guys

get a good shop to do the paint job. it is not reversible since the OE clearcoat needs to be sanded off for the new paint to property stick to the wheel. gl!
