Chrome or black???

Just looking for opinions.

My ranger is that blurple color, blue\purple color, sorry no pics, and was just wondering. Black is nasty and cheap, while chrome is sexy and expensive. Your thoughts???

Guess if I would have looked at the topic it was posted under that would have made more sense my bad.....I would say it could go either way chrome or black....I would say get a wheel that has both.....a black rim and chrome center or the other way around.

Black is so much cheaper, but the chrome is just wow on some trucks I've seen. I'll probably be going black accessories because most is going to be custom. But that doesn't mean my rims gotta be black too. Should accessories match rims? opinions?

You can always give each a shot like I did!

I tried doin the chrome dance for a while:



A couple years later I realized that unless you have the time to keep the chrome clean its not worth putting up with, so I changed to black!



So to save you the hassle of enduring this race, just get black and go straight to the finish line.

They would look good on your truck, but I would not do the blue bead lock on it.

chrome will look great for your color truck. black wheels are better for 4x4 (what is yours?) and for black or yellow trucks.

lowered blurple ranger = chrome

lifted blurple ranger = black

unless you are going to paint to later, then that changes everything
