Depends on what the truck looks like. What color is it? How much chrome is on it? I LOVE black wheels, but they only work on vehicles with a certain look, IMO.

What the he!!, I vote ALL BLACK!!

Go black!! much easier to keep clean than chrome. Chrome will tarnish if you don't keep them clean, I would know

I'm with the all black as well but it depends on what is already on the truck. I also like the XD797 Spy black machined.

Post up a pic of your truck so we can be more help to you.

You could go either way but if you black out your bumpers with the black wheels it would look pretty mean.

It can go either way. If you have a black or white truck without chrome already black wheels look good. If it's any other color or you already have chrome on the truck go with chrome or mixed chrome/black wheels. It would help if you add some current pictures to your garage.
