    A few years back chrome was in style. Now it's black. I think a good looking wheel looks good in eighter chrome or black. And they always go with whatever color truck you have. I had solid black FJs. Swaped them last week for silver/black 957s.

    I just ordered the 955's in black along with the toytec ultimate kit... The 955's are not really black because most of the finish is machined. It is a good combination of both but to each is own. On some cars/trucks I like black wheels, but cannot stand stock wheels painted black, chrome to me is ghetto, but like I said to each is own.

    BLACK!!!! I really do not like chrome at all anywhere anytime. But it is all in what you like most. I like the wheels with the aluminum rim and black center, that is what I am going to get for mine.
