Default Chrome or Black Wheels

Alright guys, I know it's an age old debate, but I am truly on the fence. I love the looks of the SRT 8 Hollanders in both Chrome and Gloss Black. I live in the Northeast and I know the Chrome will be impossible to keep clean unless I use the stocks in the winter. I also love the Blacktop look...so let's hear it, what does everyone think...Chrome or Black?

Get them in 'Gunmetal' it'll match the gray, IMHO.

Forget chrome; especially up here in the NE (black chrome powder coating is cool though), black or gunmetal is the way the go.

The gunmetal is a very close match to the exterior paint. One of the members here put the SRT8 five spokes on his gray DD and it looks GREAT !

I did see the gunmetal and agree it matches almost perfect, but I also agree I think it might need some contrast. decisions decisions!

And as long as the wheels are off why not add RED caliper covers? :-)

I hope to order today. I have a guy who is buying my black tops....I think. We are just trying to work out the details.

Also trying to figure out what I want to do with the center caps. They will give me stock dodge centers that are just machined silver color. I will either paint the centers black to match the lug nuts or try to get them painted to match the wheels, which is what I really want to do. I have a buddy who is a real good auto paint guy so I think he could match them.

Hope my deal doesn't fall thru!

Rich the center caps they give you are plain plastic
Look at the MOPAR caps available on ebay or thru your local dealer they fit right in same as factory caps
