I myself would go with a standard gloss black. No mirror black, high gloss black, wet black, nothing like that. Just a standard 80-85% gloss.

This is just from knowledge and seeing it first hand, and this of course is just me. Check online at different colors/shades.
Prismatic powders has some of the craziest colors out, you might change your mind on that black http://www.prismaticpowders.com/?gcl...FUOK4Aod5isA9g
If you feel iffy before dropping the PC'er the money for the wheels, ask him to shoot a sample as well

Damn, where do you guys get these prices? Is there any wheels repair (curb rashes, etc) involved or just powder coating? In NYC, the going rate (with refinishing) is $125/wheel.

im highly considering doing this. my car looks the same as yours, same white paint but I have a 13 wrx wit dark 15% tint. I think it would look great PC black. I actually really like these stock wheels just not the fact everyone has them. I may also consider putting these wheels on my 98 forester if thats possible and going after market wheels on the wrx.
