Default Black Chrome?

Anyone have pics of black chrome wheels (or exhaust tips)? On or off the car, it doesnt matter. I had black chrome tips for my F body a long time ago and never installed them - no longer have the pics... Thanks.

They look great! A bit more light in color than I remember black chrome to be... but still- very nice. Thanks for posting!

Yeah thats hardly what I would call black chrome. At least not what I have come to know as black chrome.

Here are some black chrome wheels that I had on my Cobra.



I think it's a great compromise between chrome, which I highly dislike, and dark wheels, which I prefer.
