defenintely chrome or polished aluminum but make sure u get cereamic break pads or you will have to clean them atleast once a week . Break dust will eat your chrome so fast its just not funny . If you aren't into detailing and polishing your rims all the time get the black ones , they look ok .

I hope to come up with used rims someday cuz i like chrome but i figure since i almost never clean my truck they will get destroyed . if i can't i'll probably go with black even though i don't really like the look.

I got myself a set of black wheels this summer after running chrome for over a year, winters are just too much of a toll on chrome, just had my rear bumper rot thru completely this month

It doesn't look like you got much help. Some like one, some like the other.
Personally I think black rims are really fugly. They look like something off a police cruiser. Kinda like wearing shorts with black socks. Best way to go is just do what you like the best.
