Ultimately, it's your call.

IMHO - If it were me, I'd leave them chrome.

You know what they say about opinions. That's mine. I have very rarely seen a vehicle with painted wheels that I think looked good. I can't stand the blacked out look.

well, i painted one with the " Chrome black out" and its actually pretty cool... in the right light it still looks like chrome, but has a hint of black depending on the way you look at it... i figured its just the little stars.. i can get more if i need to. ill do the other 3 tomorrow and get pics up... pretty cool stuff.
