yes, that is their standard Matte black. I personally would do the full wheel so the edges dont try to peel. Good luck, general rule of thumb is about a can per wheel. The more coats you do the easier it is to peel off when taking it off. If its too thin it will still come off but a ton of little pieces. I did my 22" SS replicas and when i peeled them off it came off as 1 piece. Do alot of THIN coats, NOT heavy or it runs.

Sweet! For now i am going to black out my air intake to match the rest of the engine! I was going to have the pipe powder coated but thats a hassle.
