Reflection from side steps onto door panels

So I've had the side steps on for a while and thinking I'll keep them. Though not so functional as a step they seem to keep stuff off the Jeep and like the looks for the most part.

However at least on a white vehicle I notice the reflection from the black step portion of the chrome steps reflects onto the doors and want to see if there are other options to replace the black with a different color that may look decent.

Anyone else come across this and try something?

Thanks

Well, chrome step pads would be out for the obvious reason of wear and tear. Making them white rubber or plastic would be a nightmare to keep clean.

However, you may be able to get aluminum or stainless steel treads. That would certainly reduce the obvious color difference in the reflections.

Thanks. Anyone know if they are available for the stock steps?

Appears you can also unscrew the pads. Wonder what they look like underneath I may have a look.
