chrome almost never looks bad... to me, black sometimes seems like they didnt have the money for chrome but wanted those rims...unless you have a black on red theme going with tones of black accents...

I say chrome. Black looks cheaper sometimes and it usually doesn't make the truck look as sharp, imo.

If you had the xlt chrome bumpers and maybe mirrors and such I think it looks good. But IMO with all the painted surfaces it looks out of place.

Or better yet, chrome and black!!



You have to take good care of them but they will rust anyway.... I wsy go full black or polished aluminum... I didn't and wish I hadn't gone cheap on my rims. I'm gonna be spending about 1400 bucks on rims and tires again...AFTER I purchase my lift parts.

I myself like black and red. There was no chrome on my truck to begin with and paying less for stuff is definetly a plus. I don't think it makes it look cheap though.

I like the bling that chrome or polished aluminum gives a truck.

I voted black. Thought we were talking trim, not wheels. Black wheels are ugly no matter what they are on!
