Getting New Wheels - Chrome or Teflon?

I will be ordering some new wheels, which brings me to my question. Would you go with chrome or teflon?

Chrome gets you home, but if you are going to be rough on them, then go with teflon.

Chrome on your truck. IMO, vista blue and chrome were made for eachother.

X2, I was about to say the same thing.

If you do get the teflon, get some black headlights.

High five, we fcking rock Chris! Lmao

I agree, if you go teflon then you should go black headlights/corners/tails as well. I hate to see you do that though. Vista blue has more potential than being dragged down by blacking the truck out.

That truck looks KILLER in the sun, even in your avatar, that color looks kick butt. You need CHROME wheels to go with it.
