Black wheels, too much

Not sure if I like the black wheels over my chrome ones. Opinions?

Re: Black wheels, too much

Looks great! I would plasti-dip the running boards to match though. I really like your rig.

Chromes much better. The blacks made a dark hole, nothing can be seen.

Steve,
I think you hit it on the head. I screwed up and painted the Nissan center caps so maybe that would have helped. I also painted the tires so they are as black as the wheels right now :-(

However, I only did one side so I can pull back a bit on the other side today :-) And.... I should have figured I would get a good split of opinions :-) thank everyone for responding.

Black wheels, too much

Ya I like the Nissan emblem on the wheels left chrome. That's how I did mine. It just breaks it up a little bit. And I've got an all black truck. But I do like the black wheels on yours

I love the black... With a chrome burger and red painted calipers they would look really nice IMHO.
