Chrome or black rims?

Chrome or black rims?

Postby BLUESHIRT11 [OP] » Jan 21 2011, 3:14am

Have a 2009 silverado 1500 in victory red. Everyone keeps telling me to get black rims and get rid of stock chrome. Anyone have a pic of a 2008-2010 red silverado with black rims? Would like to see what it looks like before buying.

Quick google image.

Chrome is overplayed. Everyone goes out and buys 20" chrome rims and puts them on their ride and then looks like every other vehicle on the road. Go black or even a black chrome.

Here is a pic of my old truck with black chrome rims

Black is the new chrome. Don't buy rockstars and you'll be good!

im extremely biased on this issue...i have a black 09 silverado...and i went with 18x9 black xd monsters. i HATE chrome though. im slowly but surely eliminating all of the chrome on my truck...but xd does make some sick black wheels

with your truck being red...black would be really badass if you painted/bought black bowties...

Must be and age thing. I do like some black, but I'm still a (tastefully appointed) chrome guy.

That's what I was gonna suggestion. Google "Red Silverado Black rims" then at the top left click on IMAGES
You get other stuff but you will get a good idea like what AK Sierra11 posted.
I agree with LBZ Black is the new Chrome.

hahaha it mainly has to do with where I live. I live in San Antonio, Texas, and everyone here gets HUGE chrome rims on their cars/trucks....and I just wanted to be different. Every vehicle I see going down the road has enormous amounts of chrome on their vehicles. I just wanted to stand out, and after I got my black rims....I'll never go back!
