Only a few states are still allowed to chrome plate, I had to send my wheels to California to have them chromed. Chrome wheels started to make a comeback about 10 years ago, but faded fast.

From a creative perspective I hate them for photos and videos. That said they show the lines of the car better when its a light/bright color and don't overwhelm the design. Also they can hide brake dust a bit.

And of course there is the black/black look...

I guess it's all about personal preference.

Exactly!! And with these vehicles being as ostentatious as they are, we as owners literally have a blank canvas to do whatever we personally want to do with the car.

Want to go with a completely different color? You got it!


You want chrome?! Why stop at just the wheels!!


You like pink?! Let's throw in some neons too!!


Basically, you're right. It's all up to the individual to decide what kind of look they are going for

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.

Youíll both be glad to know that black wheels arenít the trend anymore and itís now going back to bright silver wheels currently. Everything changes with time and then goes back to how it used to be. These wheels look incredible in person but hard to appreciate in a picture. Like a white kitchen. Always in style.
