Definitely 100% the Chrome wheels look so much better, makes the car look meaner and makes the paint stand out more, the black looks dull and takes away from your Camaro.

Definitely the black ones, they look really nice and it doesn't draw to much attention to the rims like the chrome ones do. It makes your car really stand out as a package. The chrome just draws way to much attention to them and takes away from your car.

I'm in the minority here but I hate black wheels. I really like a gun metal metallic finish or even silver but I'm weird that way ha ha. Nice to see those replicas on a car finally!

Chrome looks fantastic. AND your car will be quicker with the lighter smaller wheel.
