Opinion on headlights with my new wheels...

I need opinions. I am getting a new set of wheels this weekend and I'm wondering since the wheels I am getting are black, if I should change the headlights/corners to black housing. Here are some pics that should help.

** Also, I have seen black housing clear corners and black housing amber corners, what do you think?

Silver... is that an 06/07 corner with the headlight mod done? The headlight itself would be no different than if I bought it off Ebay, as there shouldn't be any differences between doing the headlight mod and the black housings for sale.

I might just hold off for now. How careful were you with the 06/07 corners, I've heard they can be hard.

I say go with the black headlights and clear corners with the black housings or the '06's with the black housing, either of those will look pimp!

Yeah the black headlights and corners would look good, but I don't think the corners with the amber lenses would look to hot.

i say stick with the chrome headlights. The black stands out and doesn't match with everything. at least the stock headlight housing goes with the chrome on your grill and bumper.

I know I don't have any chrome on my truck but the black headlights flow really well with our color. Personally, I think with the black rims that the blacked out headlights and corners (no amber) would look great because it flows with the valence, grille, mirrors, tires, rims, stepbars, trim, and undercarraige. There's a lot more black on every truck than you think. Plus you have to remember, that's a photoshop up there. It would have a glare on it which would make it stand out less.
Here's mine, I don't think they stand out in any way from the truck. Name:  IMG_1095.jpg
