    I am looking at getting some new wheels and I cannot decide, chrome or black. I am looking for opinions/pics of what looks best...silver with chrome wheels or silver with black wheels?

    How bout both - Black Chrome. (Hope the owner of this Viper doesn't mind me posting) I have Calchrome rims on my Kandy Serpent and I think black chrome would look good on a Silver Viper. [​IMG]

    I think Rocket may be on to something. Black chrome on a silver car. I like the idea, but I have not seen it. I like regular bright chrome on a silver car though. I think black dulls down a car... just my opinion...

    Paul - I know what you're looking for - BLUE CHROME!

    I think the Black Chrome would add a little contrast to a silver viper.

    Looks like 2 giant black holes... with a speck of red. I think it is just the picture quality. :dunno:

    Chrome for me,

    Changed my wheels on my Mustang from Chrome to black and wasn't as keen.

    Here's a couple of pictures of mine. Originally had chrome but I changed to SRT 6-spoke and had them powder-coated black, courtesy of JonB.

    For me, black wheels makes them visually disappear.:(
    Chrome is a nice accent on silver.:2tu:

    I know they are not a popular wheel but I like my "chrome" (actually polished) ten spokes on my silver.

    Exactly right, you loose the wheels on the Silver.

    Great look Mopar Steve. Love it! We are looking at getting the same hardtop. I am guessing that is the Jeff Lemke hardtop?

    Chrome is nice, black is nasty looking. Depends on what type of look you are going for. Chrome, to me, looks more dressy while black looks more like a racing setup.

    I really like the contrast of black on silver.

    I like polished more than chrome, chrome has this effect of almost "cloaking" the wheel. It is so reflective you can't appreciate the design of the wheel, all you see is a reflection of everything around it. Black is similar in that it hides the wheel, blending in with the tire and the wheel well, almost like the car is floating or something to that effect.

    I like a black/ chrome combination wheel (black face/chrome lip)

    Silver for the street. Black for the track
