Help me decide wheel finish for Interlagos Blue

Guys,
I think I've decided to go for the 20" DPE SC SP-10 for my IB coupe. However, I've only seen this wheel finished with a gloss black lip and matte black center. Although that finish looks killer, I'm afraid that look will be too dark for my car color. I'd really like to get some opinions on finish that would look great (brushed alum/brushed gunmetal/etc.)

By the way, other mods I have in place are: 20% tint, gloss black kidneys, gloss black sides w/tinted lens, carbon roof, carbon zcp spoiler, and AA exhaust, alpine halos.

Thanks in advance guys and hopefully you will finally help me make up my mind...I've been agonizing over this for many weeks.

Mike

IMO, just about anything but black will work great.

I say glass black lip, brushed center. It will look hot.

I personally love brushed silver with interlagos, however black does go as well. I would probably do the matte over the gloss but thats just my opinion.

I think matte black and silver both look good.

Do u have any examples of these that I can see pics of? That combo just seems odd...I've seen the opposite however.
