    Here is some food for thought and it may or may not work. Is there enough room inside of the holes/cutouts of your wheels to tape off and leave silver and do the rest in black including center caps and keep the lugs chrome? Would play along with your theme and give you the best of both worlds. I wonder if someone could photoshop something for you.

    get them done in translucent black. They will look like black chrome. Way better than generic black and not so cheap looking like rattle can jobs IMO.

    I would go with the black teflons, cleaning them will be so much better than polishing those wheels you have now. And later if you feel like you have too much black on your truck, you can pull your fender flares off and line-x them silver (they do exact color match) and thats only about $100.

    I like your truck the way it is. Black is the new in color, but yours looks great.

    There's a guy on here that does powder coating in san diego. It's not too expensive. I got a quote from Young Gun in rancho for $140 (w/ sandblasting) for all 4 wheels.

    Young Guns? How's their work? Does anybody know how much triad cost for a set of rims? Or anybody else that has a good rep on here.

    Yes! The wheels would look so much better flat black.
