Paint those ****'s, imo it kinda looks funny with shiny centercaps on black wheels. I painted mine, that duplicolor wheel paint works awesome!

Leave 'em chrome. Looks like a police truck!

If you do paint the centers, don't paint the lugs, it makes it look tacky, like you just spayed without removing. 'Sides, you need something to break up all that black.
