Opinions...

I'm torn between both of these wheels. Did the whole pros and cons thing and I'm deadlocked. I'm looking for opinions. Maybe something someone here says might sway me on way or the other...

Re: Opinions...

Since you only see one side of a car at a time ... 2 of each.

Seriously, it would depend on the color of the car. If it was listed, I missed it.

This. And yeah, exterior color makes a big difference. Darker colors other than black, I'd say probably stick with chrome. Lighter colors and red, black chrome all the way.

I can't do it right now, but if you shoot me a pm with a pic of your WK2, I can photoshop each of the wheels on there and you can see what it looks like. Don't have PS on this computer, though, since I'm at work. I can do it at home this evening.

I'm inclined to say black chrome, too, but on silver it really could go either way. I'll find a stock picture of a Silver WK2 this evening and see what I can do with it. What year & model? Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit? I'm fairly certain neither of the last two, but never know.....so gotta' ask.

It's a 2012 Laredo in silver. My only concern about the black chrome is that it will look too black and that's not a look I'm after. I've never seen black chrome before so I can't judge. My original plan was to go with "hyper silver" (I believe that's what it was called) but the person I spoke with (Scott??) suggested against it cause of the region I live and the fact that I deal with snow a few months of the year.

Re: Opinions...

Black chrome will look like chrome, but darker. It's sort of hard to explain without seeing it.

Exactly. I have had a few people try to describe it to me and end their description with "you just have to see it"

Re: Opinions...

I have a Mineral Gray GC and here are the black chrome wheels on mine:
A or B

Maybe this'll give you an idea of what they look like. See post #16
