Thatís a good loooking wheel and I prefer gloss black over flat or matte finish wheels. I think matte black wheels visually blend in the with the tire and sort of disappear giving the effect of the car looking like it has an empty wheel well. Also, this wheel looks like it would be easy to clean. I hate cleaning wheels with too many nooks and crannies and lots of spokes. It might look good but I dont want to spend anymore time on wheel cleaning than I have to.

Yes to all of that. I like a wheel that is "open" and lets you see the brakes, etc. Also, one that is easy to clean.

I like gloss black as well, especially with a rim of brushed alu showing. The satin or matte finish doesn't show brake dust as much.

My last car had a very open split 5 spoke and ceramic brakes all around. Cake to clean and I got spoiled.

I actually like these new 5 spoke a lot, that rounded seam between the spokes is popular these days. It looks pretty good to my eye.
