Default Anyone running black chrome wheels on a GS

Sitting here watching it snow and I am thinking about what to do to my GS. Thinking of putting some black chrome wheels on my 2012 crystal red metallic GS. Has anyone done this? Anybody have pics that they can share?

Here's mine on '13 GS I think one of the best mods I did.




this pic the wheel looks more black than it is chrome, the other pic shows how it actually looks which is chrome

Are those wheels OEM or aftermarket? If aftermarket where did you get them?

Reproduction wheels, from "Florida Speed Shop", had them for 2 yrs now & no problems with them.
also "Factory Reproductions" online has a great selection

I think black chrome would look good on a black or silver .... or maybe gray car. Not sure I'd care for them on crystal red. I have that wheel, but in chrome on a torch red GS. Love the wheel design. You'll be happy whatever 'color' you choose. Just my $.02

Looks nice but I just kinda like the OEM GS style wheel. That is black chrome I think would look nice.
