What spokes will look the best?

Needed to respoke my wheels and just not sure what look I should go for so put together a few examples.  

From top to bottom:
1. Polished Brass Bullet Nipples and Polished Stainless Steel Diamond Back Spokes
2. Same as 1, except dulled down with an abrasive pad
3. Same as 2, except spoke painted black
4 & 5. Same as 2, except painted the nipple and spoke black and then scratched off some of the paint to try and give them a dirty look.

Intend making the rims and hubs black as I am trying to go for a dirty bobber look so I am kinda thinking that 4 & 5 would look okay, however kinda like 3 as well. 

Appreciate any comments on which would look the best.
