Default Lug nuts: Chrome or Black?

I changed my lug nuts to black Mcgard lugs and I am wondering what you guys think. Chrome or black?

I have the chrome with the black wheel and I like the contrast. Personal preference.

I also prefer the chrome to contrast with the black wheels. If you are going to keep the black lug nuts then I would recommend black valve stem caps as well.

I reject false choices. Neither chrome, nor black.

It is just a color change but it really makes a big difference in the look IMO.

I was pleased with the quality of the McGard lugs. They seem very well made.
