Dravit Grey X5M Comp....powdercoat stocks wheel black or leave as is?

Just curious what you guys like on this color.....I have the 809M wheels pictured (the pic isn't my actual car....but same specs with wheels, red calipers, and exterior color).

Do I leave these wheels as is or do I powder-coat them gloss black? I almost feel the dravit is a more aggressive color that might look more put together with black wheels (and it might make the dravit pop a little more). Photoshopped the black wheels on....

I love the look of the black wheels but they are unforgiving. I had them on my 2019 DG with all the trim in black. As careful as I am, I got curb rash once or twice and it stands out big time on the black. Drove me nuts looking at it until I got it repaired.

Are you leasing the car? If so, leave it stock.

Well, no, technically the inner parts are already black...it's really just the "face" of the wheel that isn't.

Don't think any other colors would look good (besides black or leaving stock)......not to mention you are playing the game of not knowing how it will flow until it's painted and on the car and then my only option is a repaint if I hate it.

I think the 809s look good stock. If it were the 818 I would paint.
