Opinion needed for 2015 high altitude - side rails?

Hey everyone, first post in the forum and recent owner of a new 2015 white GC High Altitude. Just looking for opinions for side rails... Would the stock chrome tube rails look out of place on the white high altitude? Would black rails be better suited? Thank you in advance for the opinions. And great site love all the info.

Thanks!!

All the other trim is black right? Sans the window trim. My .02, I'd go with black. I can't stand all the chrome on the Limited model and prefer the contrast of the white/black.

In your case I'd say, black.

Hmmm. Are the grill rings and fog light bezels chrome or the black chrome? The chrome rails might look good on there too. I'd still lean towards black, but that's tough though. Maybe there are some Altitude owners with them on who will chime in.

All the chrome looking areas are a dark almost smoke color.. Not all black but yet not shiny chrome. I couldn't find any pics anywhere to help in the process !

Re: Opinion needed for 2015 high altitude - side rails?

Yeah, that's what I was meaning - the smokey chrome, not actually black per se. Black rails are probably the best then.

Re: Opinion needed for 2015 high altitude - side rails?

I was thinking the normal chrome ones not the smoke colored ones. But now I'm thinking they won't look right. Need a smoke color or black

I just got a Altitude and put on the OEM black running boards. They are a dull black and don't exactly match the shiny black wheels, but look fantastic regardless. I'll post pics asap...
