Sheen of Black Wheels vs. Hood / Stripe

Does the sheen of he black wheels match the matte black hood and stripe? From the pictures I've seen the wheels look slightly more glossy.

The black wheels look like they were spray painted by an 8 year old.

If these were made in Taiwan, you are probably correct.

Black wheels are a low-gloss paint.

Hood is a satin paint...

...ground effects are a black plastic with a satin texture.

That said -- there's enough gloss in the wheels help separate it from the black of the tires. They look REALLY good!

...the wheels are glossier than the matte black stripe...but the solid color, black wheels, painted CF insert, black matte stripes, and black aero package is just the P e r f e c t combination IMHO....
