Black rims on Black trucks


I'm not looking to offend any1!
But I can't hold it in anymore.
So I'm just gonna say it...

IMO
Black rims on Black vehicles are all played out.
Hate seeing gloss black paint...a faded black tire and a black painted rim.
Along with the all blacked out truck (smoked headlights and tail lights,tinted glass and black grill)...Its all getting old boys.

IMO
White, Red and green colored vehicles still all look great with black rims.

Silver and gray vehicles look great with same color matched rims.

Sorry had to get it out there.

Re: Black rims on Black trucks

different strokes for different folks... blacked out everything is a little played out, yes, but it still looks good.. and if your car/truck/jeep is already black and you wanna change the look of it with the wheels.. you dont have many options.

would i prefer my jeep in green metallic clearcoat (then gunmetal or black wheels).. yes.
am I gonna pay $3K to do that.. no.

so other than keeping wheels stock (which IMO on a black car is boring)... black is the top option. a gunmetal grey wouldnt be drastic enough a change. And i dont have a problem with the black wheels as opposed to stock. still looks good whether its played out or not.

Re: Black rims on Black trucks

Your right to each their own.
Again, this just IMO...chrome rims on black painted cars/trucks, tinted windows and some chrome highlights never dies and will always look sharp.

Re: Black rims on Black trucks

IMO chrome is played out, and has been for a long while.

Re: Black rims on Black trucks

whether the chrome is played out or not, I'm not entirely sure.. but I am sure that I only like chrome on the grill and door moldings if i have gunmetal aev wheels on a metallic green or silver WK. otherwise, get that chrome outta my face.

especially on wheels and door handles.

Re: Black rims on Black trucks

Actually Black wheels usually only look good on black vehicles to me. It's a matter of taste I don't think it's run it's course just yet.

Agreed! All black is Darth Vader fantasy stuff. Old school now. Black with a touch of chrome is classic. It will never die. Actually my Grand is Black Forest Green Pearl. Nobody ever picks it as not black. In fact it looks blacker than black and really shmick with a touch of chrome. I didn't realise it would be so black when I ordered it but I love it now.
