Default Dark coloured wheels.. but why

At 60 I need to ask what it is with dark coloured or black wheels.
May be itís my age but black wheels are like cheap Steeleís to me so what I would like to ask whatís the inspiration for choosing dark or black wheels.

I had Chrome on my 2008, and black chrome on my 2012. Then I went to solid gloss black on the next 3 just seems to work better with the overall appearance of the car.

I hated black wheels at one time, not any more.

I like it because it looks "racey" compared to chrome or silver wheels. Chrome looks too blingy for me on most cars - reserved for luxury rather than sporty vehicles. Silver isn't bad and usually goes with anything, but on my car I have more dark accents than light, so I think dark wheels look better.

I agree, and I finally decided that the chrome really looks dated. Iím from the 60ís and all my rides had chrome wheels.

I for one can't stand black wheels. No one said wheels have to be chrome, but to make them invisible, I don't get. Wheels are an important accent on a car, and they should been seen!

They are only hard to see in pics. I hate silver wheels on most anything. Chrome only looks good on a vintage car or a Harley.

I do like the Mimas with the silver trim, but they won’t do it on the gloss black.
