Gloss or Satin Black Wheels?

Just dropped off my wheels at powder coating shop. I chose gloss black and wife says to get satin instead.... I attached pic of my wheels and Arctic Grey. I just ordered black grill too....

I still have plenty of time to change the color.

I also attached a pic of the wheels plastidipped. This was just temporary to see how well I liked the color.

I also also attached a pic of my winter setup with HELO wheels in gloss.

Decisions decisions...

Wow you've a good selection of spare rubber on the shelves there, lol. I like that your garage has a drain in, wish mine did.

I prefer satin, like the look of it over gloss myself. Either will look great though.

I like the gloss black.

Are those the Helo HE912 from Tirerack? Did you get the 20mm or 40mm offset? The stock is 35mm, so I wasn't sure if it would be better to go with a 40mm and get a 5mm spacer (if even needed), or with the 20mm and deal with the 15mm positive scrub.

Wow, this is the bluest I've seen the Arctic Gray look yet, almost said I don't love black with the blue paint! (Then remembered you says AG). I think given those blue tones, satin would look better and gloss may clash. But maybe you have an idea from your winters whether or not that is an issue in person.

I honestly don't know the offset. Whatever tire rack sent. Their invoice doesn't show. I do have spacers on now, 10 in the front, 12 back I think.

Went with Satin BTW. Still at the powder coaters now. I'll update thread with pics.
