    I would leave them silver as if you did them a darker colour it would make the wheels look small.

    As dan has said above !, when i first had my wheels repainted people said it made the wheels look small , the other factor being it made the wheels blend into the car more , And as for cleaning, dirty black wheels look just as bad as dirty silver ones i had mine paint sealed so it really is a case of a quick wipe down is all thats required .
    But saying that i prefer my wheels done in anthracite and have no intention of changing them, your choice mate i say go for it just make sure its done properly with a paint seal
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
    and still loving it
