Post Black rims or chrome?

Should I paint my rims black? Or should I leave them chrome?

Thinking about painting them red as well. And black bed liners.

I’m trying to plastic dip them and put red bed liners on it.

Man, I wouldn't touch those rims. Maybe get them touched up/repaired and replated, but not painted or anything. Just my opinion.

Those wheels should stay chrome.
If you really have to do black, make it gloss black. I don't think satin/flat black would look good on that style wheel.

Those are FOSS rims would be a sin to plastic dip them. If you want Gloss or Matte black sell the chrome ones and but new Black ones.

Just depends on what look you’re after. In your particular case, I’d go with the chrome. Fits the style wheel and color of the car, imho.

Please leave those chrome. There's some wheels that can look good in black, but I don't think that would be one of them.
