So being inspired by the upcoming Chevy Redline Series, of which the Cruze is part of, and looking at the wheels:

Alloy wheel Tire Automotive tire Wheel Rim

I thought I'd give it a whirl in black on my aftermarket wheels with a little slant.
Now, I'm kind of torn if it is overkill, or just leave the wheels as is.
Thoughts?

I'd just leave them all silver.

You could try doing one spoke a different color, but that usually is best left to something with a "fatter" spoke. That design of wheel is really best suited to being one color.

Are these still on the car? How long did they last if not? Would you do it again?

They were still on the wheels when I sold them and it held up fairly well. I had to redo one or 2 of them as the edges started to come up. But when I removed them to redo them, it took part of the clearcoat off. Didn't really matter to me as I was covering that up anyway.

Would I do it again on my current wheels? Perhaps, but haven't really gotten around to it; not high on my priority list :)

Hash marks look fine on a C7 Grand Sport front fender.
