Default Show me your wheels!

Hi all,

I'm thinking of repainting my wheels on my ZT a very dark metallic grey.
I had a ZS which I did the same to, but, the ZT has different lines, and I don't want to paint my wheels and then find I don't like them and have to paint them back to silver!
I realise it's a personal thing, what I / you may like, someone else doesn't, that part I believe is what makes us, well, us! So everyone will have their own view on either silver wheels or what ever colour, in my mind there is no right or wrong, it's down to personal taste.
So, what I'm after please, is people who have dark painted wheels, could they post a side view of their cars so I can have a nosey and help me make up my mind!
If anyone has 11 spoke wheels like I have on my car, then even better!
Many thanks everyone!

Not sure if this will help as the wheels are a bit scabby and someonehas managed to spatter black spray paint on them in places, or so it looks.
These will be getting refurbished next week in a different Anthracite colour. Screenshot attached, hopefully which should show a more goldy/silver tinge as opposed to the bluey hue on them currently.
I picked the colour from the website the powder coater gave me a link too.

Sorry, yes it is. Paintwork also rough but it’s being dealt with this week, midway through paint correction and ceramic coating so might explain the dullness in the picture.

Good plan, but being a technophobe, it's not that easy for me to do!
