Chrome or Polished Wheels - bright Silver WK

I am torn between going all chrome or brushed vellano wheels on my bright silver wk, limited, 5.7L.

Chrome: http://vellanowheels.com/gallery/VSK...0_3/s550_3.htm

Brushed: http://vellanowheels.com/gallery/VSK...cherokee_1.htm

What do you think? ~rudez

Re: Chrome or Polished Wheels - bright Silver WK

Thanks for the comments. I guess all chrome is a little too much bling for me.
However, polished/brushed with a chrome lip should give the best of both

Re: Chrome or Polished Wheels - bright Silver WK

I'm not into shiny things on my own ride, so if black is not an option, I'd go with the brushed! But your the one who has to love it!
