Flat black just looks too plain IMO. A slightly lighter color would show up some, and would offer some contrast to the black rubber of the tire. You can always use photoshop to experiment with different color choices if you have the time..

I saw a dakar yellow E36 M3 around town with stock rims painted a gloss black and it looked really good IMO. Kidney grills will be blacked out also on my car.
