    With a white truck, either black or chrome will look good. But it really depends on the design of the rim AND the tires mounted on them.

    For myself, I would go with the black & machined.

    I wish the black wheel fad would die a fiery death. Some trucks can look ok with gun metal wheels, but black--especially on cars--looks so bad. IMO of course.

    Black reminds me of when I was poor kid in high school and had to buy 4 rattle cans to paint my steel wheels.

    Chrome looks timeless and classy, IMO.

    I was blacking-out my wheels way back in the 80s and I thought it was a cool thing. But I always had bright offsets as I feel a full-on blackout looks lousy. My '79 Malibu and '86 Camaro back probably before you's were born:



    So OP, I say do what Sikyota04 did. It's a tough look on these trucks.
