Everything in moderation. Theres a limit to how much chrome one vehicle can have. If your riding a civic with chrome door sills, Its ghetto. If your riding an AMG with chrome door sills... Not so bad.

I'm 42 and I also believe it's color dependent. I think flat black looks sweet on neutral colored trucks though... I've always liked the played down look of military vehicles.

Military can have some pretty badass setups that's for sure

Police profile black wheels soooo often! It's super lame but worth it to me. Go ahead and pull me over for no reason, I've got nothing to hide officer

Very valid points! But I can say for me and quite a few of us youngsters, chrome has lost is appeal. I don't like chrome for one main reason... there's hardly such thing as chrome anymore! Any "chrome" a car manufacture is going to use is just very reflective silver painted plastic... Which has given chrome a bad name and stigma in my eyes and made me hate it. And because of the plastic chrome bullshit car companies use, I can't stand chrome wheels, especially on a truck I'm going to take off road.

I am over 35, and partial to black. I don't dislike chrome, I think it could look good on certain set-ups.

I'm 42 and have black wheels now. I do like chrome, they just require more of an effort to keep them looking good. I would have to say that I am more partial to the silver and black like the moto metal 957s or Dick Cepak DC II's.

I'm 38 and not a fan of chrome.

I like black, then probably silver or titanium look. Mine are black and polished...will probably go with all black next.

Your truck looks perfect... That has to be one of the best wheels and tires I've seen. I'm partial to black but it's seems to be what ever one is doing. I've been looking for some polished wheels.
