Last cars first set of wheels were Black Chrome then matte black. Vette has dipped black wheels for now to break up the silver on silver. I have no problem with chrome wheels but I do favor black. Those that say it must be easy to keep black wheels clean are just wrong. IMO itís harder.

LOL, my Dad said the same about power windows...

Only drawback with black wheels, most can't photograph them well enough to do them any justice. JMHO....

Pretty hard to photograph something that's almost invisible................

Sorry for I just can't help it. The black wheel craze is something I just can't fathom.
