I would normally think body color matched parts would look good, but your adding it into an area thats all black. So it might stand out and look awkward a little. I will wait and comment later though.

I would say that if I had a WK2 SRT8 one of my first mods would be to get my hands on a set of the 2013 dark wheels from the Alpine or Vapor edition. That would look sooooo good especially if you start painting some parts gloss black. I think the OEM SRT8 wheels look great, but are just a little too bright silver.
my wheels + brake dust = vapor wheels
back to the thread, i like black rings, but i am biased!

Rings? Chrome for sure.
BUT
If BLACK, then the whole grille including rings.
Thats my preference for the cherry.

Re: chrome, black or deep cherry lower grille rings?

Color match. I'm color matching my chrome grill, chrome mirror caps, chrome handles and chrome rear brow. Hopefully it will look as good as the SRT8's. (I'm not trying to make my car an SRT8, I just don't like all this chrome, chrome is not for the younger crowd lol).

Scott, do you know if those grill rings will fit on the non WK2 SRT8 grills?

Re: chrome, black or deep cherry lower grille rings?

no...they will not. Look at the grill in my sig pic. They have recesses that they snap into on the SRT grill.

Just got all my stuff from Scott's paint and performance. WOW! He does amazing work! Pics asap!

Re: chrome, black or deep cherry lower grille rings?

Nahh, not doing that. I'm just going to paint my grill, rear brow, mirror caps and door handles body color. I just hope it comes out good.
