Re: Black rims on Black trucks

Well since we are sharing our humble opinions I have few thoughts. Chrome was cool until manufacturers began chrome clad wheels. Yes, 99% of chrome trim is plastic, but In the name of the Holy Father, don't glue plastic hub caps on my wheels and call them "Chrome Alloys" So chrome is suffering because plastic = cheap/mass produced for the masses. Real chrome rims will always have value, as long as we aren't "Blinged" to death. So enter black. When I was kid, black was the color of the wheel under the hub caps. If you find a car with hub caps (getting harder these days), it's still black. Kid at the parts store bragged about how he painted his wheels black on his Audi. So I checked it out and it looked like primer... er matte? Not good. So if you want black to look good, you need that glossy powder coat and a nice set of rims. Plasti dipping the stocks rims is like a band aid. I mostly find that it obscures the blandness of most stock rims so our eyes can return to the car itself. So the next great idea is "competition grey", but isn't that primer grey? When did primer get a gloss finish and become stylish? I think if I had a laredo with little to no chrome trim, the comp grey would be cool, but the grey and chrome do not mix. I do like white, but for as much brake dust as the stock brakes give off, that's not really a good idea. So to run white you need to upgrade to ceramic brake pads, so it's an arms race. Plus white on white is tricky. You really need to color match the white if possible and you need some chrome or black or break it up because even storm troopers have accessories. So I vote for chrome, black or white if it is done well. But cheap imitations ruin it for everyone who really likes to look at cars. No more primer and calling it matte black... And definitely no more chrome cladding or cladding of any kind for that matter. Heck, now I'm just rehashing here.

Re: Black rims on Black trucks

I agree with you, I will admit that some cars look good blacked out but I am getting kind of sick of seeing blacked out cars. My biggest pet peave is when people plastidip their stock wheels, grill, and other parts that are unnessessary to black out. I really like white cars with black tail light and black rims. It might be the fact that I have a white Jeep with black wheels. I am however still debating whether or not to black out the lights on my Jeep.

How is it unnecessary to paint/PD your chrome trim, wheels, grille and such? Blacked out means Blacked Out. All Black, No chrome or IMO your not blacked out.

Re: Black rims on Black trucks

I'm in love with my blacked out Jeep. It never gets old looking at it. Looks clean being debadged and no chrome. I've gotten tons of compliments and looks from people. And I'm assuming (and hoping lol) that they are staring in a good way and not in a bad way haha. But to each their own. My dad doesn't get the black on black thing, he's all about that old school chrome. Says its all these young kids that like the black on black. And to agree with someone else's post, the stock silver rims on black Jeeps just look so awkward IMO. Make it look like a moms car
