    Chrome looks good but is too high maintenance for my liking. So I would say black... Or maybe some gun metal fj wheels?

    of the 2 i like black better. i would not put black on my truck
    though b/c they would always look dirty. i like the factory
    alloy color or the gunmetal ones. they are a nice medium
    b/w chrome & black.

    When i was younger my parents drove cars with black rims, but thats only because they couldnt afford hubcaps. I vote for chrome.

    IMO I like black with chrome around the outside. I have a silver truck like you and considered black time and time again. As of now, I think the factory aluminum looks best. For your poll, I voted for chrome.

    Thanks for your feedback guys. Im leaning towards black, but my dad and sister insists it look "funky". i know its my truck and i should do what i want, but i also like other people opinions to make sure its looke right on the truck and i dont mess up and get something that doesnt look right

    Black looks better on lighter colours like silver, but in the end it's all personal preference.

    Black with polished lip wheels stand out better than just plain black IMO.

    Black for sure. The only color chrome looks remotely good on is black, but still not very good IMO.
