Arrow Black rims or not??

My cars the one with the powder coated black wheels. I'm thinking about trading my wheels for the 20" SS/RS wheels. What do you guys think? And vote!

I'm guessing those are the 19s? If you can get a good deal go for it.

They're both the SS 20" stock factory wheels. I already have the black ones.

IMO, the black wheel look is already played out.

the stock polished wheels look much better, black takes to much away from the look.

I'm not a fan of everything being black on the exterior of the car. With a black car, I like seeing the wheels (not black, something that compliments the car) from the black tire.

On my Victory Red car, I have black wheels with a silver ring around the tires.

Black wheels are love it or hate it. I hate them. On a dark car the shinier the better.

this is confusing so basically you want to trade your black stock 20's for silver stock 20's?

Personally, I really like the polished wheels that I got on mine, and have no plans to change them.

Matter of taste. I do not like the black rims but many pple do. I would try for chrome or polish wheels, but that is me. When I first saw the camaro one of the first things I thought was where is the chrome. But now I love the look and on some cars the black with a touch of silver or chrome looks good. Just a matter of your taste.

Never have been a fan of black wheels really. Especially on black cars (as it's been said, all black is played out).

Some black wheels look okay, and are growing on me a bit, but overall, I stay away from black wheels.

Good luck.

I love the polished aluminum shiny look on a black car, especially when you clean them, compliments the black so much!

I agree with you and I have black wheels. IMO the stock MS and silver wheels are so hideous that you have to black them out. Polished looks pretty good. I would stay black or get a set of aftermarket wheels.

Black wheels aren't played out if its what you like. 'IMHO' I love black rims so that's what I go for. Go with what you feel is right!
