Black Wheels on a Black Car?

I have just brought a 2015 Mondeo Titanium X 2.0l (180) in panther black. It has privacy glass in the back and I love the dark, stealthy, aggressive look to the car. It has regular alloy wheels, but am thinking about either getting new wheels (jumping from 17 to 18 inches) or spraying or dipping the wheels black.

Do you think black wheels on a black car would look good, or over the top?

Not for me I like a bit of a contrast but each to their own

My new insignia is black and has black alloys with diamond cut facings. Looks very aggressive on the road

I've got a black car with....black wheels. Albeit with chrome lips. I did buy the car with them like this but I intend to put them back to OEM when I can.

I personally think the only colour that suits black wheels is Solid Red.

My favourite combo on black is a nice bronze colour.

After doing a image search on Google, I would say that both the polished alloy or dark/gunmetal grey look far better than black alloys on a black Mondeo. For a cotemporary look I would plump for the dark grey. It is personal thing though.
