Chrome Rims?

So its about time for me to get new tires. I want to take this opportunity and just get new rims also. But having a hard time deciding if chrome rims will look good with my truck. I like the XD Monster Chrome's. And before people suggest black, i like black, but the truck already has to much chrome. So i dont think black would look good.

Thanks,

Brian

I think chrome looks good with just about any color truck. Black is the new thing IMO but with that said my next set of rims will be black just because I like the black on black look.

Chrome monsters are badass when they're 20" or bigger. I say go for it.

I was going to go with 20" but now that i look at it. Im only putting a Stage 4 UCA on it. So I like the look of that with 18" with 285's so i dont have to worry about any rubbing.

Those look pretty awesome but i just had another thought. How would Spy's or Black Monsters look if I Smoked out all my lights. I LOVE the look of smoked Lights and i think with the Spy's the little bit of chrome will go with the bumpers and grill. And then the black will match the lights and mirrors. I really like that but there goes another 2 grand.
