    I am not a black wheel fan, so I would say a metallic charcoal/gray. Some of the Sequioas have factory wheels that look like they are smoked - looks like it had been painted with a translucent black/gray clear coat - that looks super sharp.

    i voted for other: since you have a black truck i would consider doing a gunmetal color for your wheels. they will stand out more than a black color. they will stand out more against the black truck.
