black vs chrome wheels with pics

I bought a motometal 951 in black for my spare tire and sorta like it. It sticks out 1/2 in further than my diamo rims. I took so pictures what do you guys think.

Chrome diamo rims





black motometal 951 with my brand new spare tire mounted.



notice tire sticks out 1/2 inch more which looks way better in my opinion



I bought the motometal used from a buddy and it doesnt have a center cap. I bought it as a spare tire rim. It does stick out 1/2 inch further than my chrome diamos which should eliminate my rubbing on the radius arms. I really wanted a 12 inch wide rim but I think these look pretty good as well. Opinions?

You asked. My opinion is thoes rims do nothing for youre truck. I like the size and the way they stick out but the wheel looks bad. the chrome wheels look 100x better.

I hate black wheels honestly but it is only for a spare tire. Chrome is such a ***** for me because I live 100 feet from the atlantic ocean so the salt air kills everything. I love the way they stick out too but both rims are actually the same size 20x10's. I really want some 20x12's in chrome. In the wheels defense it is missing the centercap which is a main part in the apperance of the wheels.

Its just a spare tire but I had to mount it to see if I like the way black wheels looked. Thanks for the opinion. Chrome wheels are my weakness lol

i liek them both. the diamo's looked awesome online but honestly they are ugly in person. Thats why I always take a pic of my truck from the front bumper on so you only see the chrome in the wheel and not the wheel design. I duno which I like better right now
