i am interested in pics as well...I don't recall seeing any pics of the blk chrome on here. I'm considering them but would like to see how they would look with Dk Charcoal Pearl. I'd like to know if there's much shine to create a contrast or do they give the typical "blacked out" look.

I've owned black chrome wheels on a previous vehicle - it does not give a blacked-out look. "Black chrome" might be a confusing title - think of them as "darker chrome". :thumbsup:

There's a seller on ebay with the Overland Black Chrome wheels but the website doesn't have any real time pics on a vehicle. I've seen other Black chrome like wheels here on vehicles, but not the Overlands...did see a photo shop but I want to see the real thing if possible.

Thanks. I was just thinking about what would the black chrome 20s look like on a brilliant black WK2. I like 'em. What do you think of the look?

jgc4ever, I will take more picks over the weekend. I got these literally today and took these pictures around 6pm. I need to look at them at noon and at direct sunlight to get a better feel as to how they look. As previous posts said, they are shiney.
I ordered them blindly and I was debating between the chrome and black matte. I guess it all depends on your liking. Matte is awesome too. Here is another example of how lighting and angles can possibly change the appearance of the black chrome. Both pictures were taken in the garage; one with minimal lighting and the other was taken with the garage door open with more sunlight. Ill take more pictures over the weekend. Overall I love them so far.
