Chrome (present wheels) or New Black Ones

Found a good Craigslist deal today. I've been looking for some wheels that are gloss black with shiny centers and lip. I think the black would look good with the headlights, corners, valance, etc, that I have been painting. The guy wants $300 for the set. Would my truck look good with those wheels?

Here's the truck now.



And here are the ion alloys that are for sale.

That is true. Chrome is super easy to take care of compared to polished aluminum.

You could always paint your center caps black, that's what I did with my factory rims.
