Matte wheels & keeping them clean

I have am close to deciding on summer rims. I like how a matte gunmetal is going to look with the Monaco Blue but am a little worried about cleaning the wheels.

The matte wheels that I have seen have a textured finish on them; can anyone tell me how much more of a pita to clean than gloss finish?

Thanks!

Probably they will be a pain you know where.......I did choose for semi gloss finish and they are as easy to clean as the factory one's. When I started my project on painting the wheels black, I did have the choice of textured but the painter told me they will give me a hard time, they will look great at the beginning.

That's my gut feel as well. Can anyone with the textured rims confirm / deny?
