Anyone have or seen black v spoke wheels?

I have a 2002 330ci and it has the sport package with the //m 18inch v-spoke wheels. I am seriously considering painting them black because new rims are out of my price range right now. Any one do this or have pictures of what it would look like? Anything helps, thanks!

Do you think a matte black powder coat would look good?

came like this when i bought it but i paint so any curb check is painted by me and holds up. If they strip the crome and prime and paint it will come out right. if there just alloy have them scuff everything because i believe there is some kinda coat over the alloy then prime and paint
