Might be a good idea to photochop both and see which looks better to you, say with and without chrome delete.

Alternatively, give Autoflex a shot before any powdercoating. If you dont like it, easy to peel and change colors or powdercoat the other color at that point.

If you black out everything (say + headlight/taillight smoke tint), there will not be any contrast left to highligh the lines, nice wheels, etc.

great advice. that looks more matte than gloss but great to see. i won’t do chrome delete or blacking out. just dark tint and powdercoat the wheels.

I would say black car — black wheels
All other colors — go with either

MPO is that black wheels disappear - you need some contrast to see the wheel. I vote for the dark grey, or lighter: gun metal, titanium, something that stands out enough to show.
