    Hey Guys,
    Planning on repainting my Volk Meshies, as the black centres are looking a bit worse for wear. I will scotchbrite or give them a sand, and undercoat them, but the question I'm asking is whether to paint Matt Black or Gloss Black?
    I'm assuming probably Matt Black...but just wanted some insight...

    Isn't satin black the same as matt black?

    slightly more shine than a matte.

    buy one of each and test spots to see which u like best i suppose, as they are your wheels not anyone elses lol.

    Best if you can beadblast the centers first too, will result in a cleaner job.
