Black AMR's/SVE's/Few other replica wheel question

I am looking for somebody who has the AMR drifts or the 2013 replica GT500 wheels AM sells in the "GLOSS BLACK. Hell even 2010 GT500 wheels. Can be SVE drifts or few others but want to leave out the really high-end and dollar wheels.
My question is to those who have them. I need honest straight feedback. With several months or hopefully even more of Daily use and normal car washing if the Black gets scratchy looking? When you detail the car and it's in the sun do the wheels show a lot of swirl or just clearcoat type scratching? Do you regret getting the gloss? Chip any? Pro's and con's of the Gloss Black?
Mine are charcoal and I like them. No issues, but I have thought about going with a gloss but just wonder if that is something I will be so so about after 6 months or year type thing later.

I have the gloss 500 replicas, have only washed twice but they look good, no scratches. My DD died a month ago so I've been using my mustang as a DD and the wheels only stay clean a few days. I haven't noticed swirls either, they just shine. Generally they are only covered in brake dust, I don't know what would happen if they met a rock.

Moved to wheels and tires

I had the gloss black FRPP track pack wheels and yea with daily use they did become pretty scratchy looking. At a distance they looked great but up close you could see all of the micro-marring in the clear coat
