Everyone has their own opinion. Some cars look better with black wheels, others look better with chrome!

Anyone who thinks the first pic looks better than the second can't see too well.

You got the wrong guy with the quote but you're more then welcome to park your black wheels next to mine as we vote Trump.

Finally !!! If any of the black wheel lovers have noticed, there are finally more people getting tired of the black "Spare Tire" look as this thread is showing. Seems like the real car people are speaking out more and more in favor of either chrome or polished...etc. And thats the way it should be. Wheels have ALWAYS been one of the greatest ways to make ones ride "POP". And the only way black wheels make a car pop is if someone likes spare tires all the way around......

I see a lot more cars with black wheels that I don't like than those that I do.

Having said that, I sure wish I liked the black wheels more. They sure must be easier to keep clean...

Quite right - chrome is not only elegant, it's "timeless !!"

Not familiar with the $x,xxxx nomenclature, if that a foreign notation?

So, is that equivalent to $200 each, $2,000 each, or $20,000 each in US dollars?

Give me chrome! I have to admit that I do like the black wheels on a black car though.

I heard it from the Alpha Male who is running for prez -- the only one with ********* (well, maybe not, the jury is still out on Hillary. )


EDIT: I had to correct the quote boxes. Batman had them all screwed up.

1997 MERCEDES SL 600 V12




2005 M6 BASE COUPE

I have both and in my honest opinion anyone that says chrome is to hard to keep clean is just lazy. And anyone that says black cars are to hard to keep clean are also lazy. As far as the debate, black or chrome wheels, I bought the car with black wheels on it and soon they will be gone. I cant stomach them any longer lol.
