There more than a fad these days. Every new sports type car has them from the factory.

And like every other fashion statement, it will go away and then come back again.

Except hot pants and tights combo. They came and then they went.

And before you all say short shorts are back in, I said tights.

15 years ago? I had black rims 30 years ago. You were all late to the party. Gotta be color enhanced these days to be current.

Chrome never seems to be out of style. And I hate black rims.

Black is good if you like wheels that look cheap and dirty.....you can't afford real wheels.

IMHO. ...black wheels blow!! To me,they are for posers trying to look bad azz, especially on black cars!! Some people put them on just to hide brake dust (probably the same ones who paint their exhaust tips black) too lazy to keep them clean. Keep it clean and keep it chrome! !!! I only speak for myself and yes, I am over 50. Bring it bitches! !

Btw: Trump 2016!!

Chrome looks great on classic cars, like my brothers XKE.



But not on modern sports cars.




Gotta love black wheels.

My chrome wheels hide dirt far better then the black ones. No different then any other black paint that shows everything.

HRE P40SC. $2,0000 each. But, since they are black, they aren't real.

Hmmmm. You can't be too bad if you are supporting Trump. See you at polls. I will park my dirty black car with black wheels next to your shiny chrome.

Umm, take a look at his avatar. Black wheels. He was stating that black wheels require just as much cleaning as chrome probably more.
