Black chrome vs. Powdercoated wheels

I have a black on black SS. I was getting ready to powdercoat my wheels black (probably satin) but the company doing them also does the stock wheels in black chrome. I have never seen black chrome wheels in person. So my question is, on a blacked out camaro, what would look better in your opinion? Thanks for the help. Any suggestions and pics of stockers black chromed of powdercoated are welcome. Thanks again.

i think the black chrome will give it a nice subdued bit of bling.

Check out their eBay store. They have a couple different options.

BTW for Black Chrome there's black chrome and black nickel..
Black Chrome is a darker chrome with a gold/copper tint......Black nickel is the deep black-chrome..

Black chroming is a triple dipped process (its a bit on the expensive side) while black nickel is about the same price as chroming a set.

In my opinion satin black on a gloss black car looks bad, I would go with gloss black or the black Chrome.

Black chrome looks great. I have them on my car. The only reason im pulling them off is because I want a lighter/wider wheel. Look in my garage or car journal for pics

Honestly I never liked the look of stock black or black chrome wheels on a black car. I'm planning to go with a dark gunmetal gray. I saw that combo on a car at MTI last year before C5F and it looked great.
