Gloss or Flat

What's everyones opinion on this. I have a black rubi and going to purchase 15" wheels for it. I am leaning towards the flat black. What looks better?

Flat makes everything look mean.

Flat holds stains, dirt, etc. far better than gloss does. Gloss is also much easier to clean. MUCH easier.

Gloss is a harder finish, as well as being easier to clean.

Chrome belongs on 29" wheels on Cadillacs and Buicks,and has no place at all on a real Jeep!Leave the chrome alone!

Thanks everyone. I didn't think about the flat finish being harder to clean.

I have what I would consider a satin finish on my black rock wheels. Cleans easy. They are pretty cheap wheels and have held up pretty good so far.
