Painted wheels?

Hi guys, Am thinking of painting wheels a darker colour but not sure how dark to go! Am guessing either gloss or matt black or maybe dark grey. All pics would be very helpful! Cheers :-)

Those wheels look great, am tempted to do the same to mine. Can I ask how much it cost, and what's quality of the black finish like up close?

BMW paid for it to be done as they had some trouble with my car and did this as way of "good will", however it costs 450.00 @ Pristine wheels; http://www.pristinealloywheels.co.uk/

The finish is superb. I wanted Metallic Black you can have any colour you like, they need the wheels though.
