I'm not a fan of chrome either but then I'm also not a fan of all black lol

I prefer the look of six o stroker where you have black but hints or splashes of the metal. This way the rim has flash or identity other wise it blends in the tires.

I actually like the chrome in my wheels... like you said it prevents blending into all black.
And when im driving it looks grey/gunmetal which is cool too.

I would be careful with those chrome wheels. I put those on my 6.0 and one of the chrome clad plastic pieces came off. I was left with three chrome wheels and one gray steel rim with the yellow glue showing. I would just go buy a set of aftermarkets if I was in your shoes.

I think your truck with the black bumpers will look good with the black rims. You can also smoke the cab lights and mirror lights. Good looking truck either way. I hate crome but its also because I live at the beach and salt air kills crome.

I was just thinking the same thing. With the black wheels and some smoked cab/mirror lights it will look real good!
