    Default Which Look (My Rims) Do you like best? Plain,Color match or all Chrome?

    Well it's that time of the year to get the Chrome back on.. So I was looking at my rims and Don't know how I want them...

    They come with Spokes. I have them Color matched (painted to match the truck) Chrome or without any...

    Thanks Al... The only problem is that the color matched were black at one point and for some reason they get deformed a little from the heat of the brakes. I painted the good ones and got some extras. They no longer make this rim in chrome for this reason and they sent me 1 full set of Chrome spokes..

    Thanks..

    I think it looks better without the spokes. To me the spokes make the rim look to busy.

    I like the Plain but not if the screw in clips are still there. If the clips dont come off then I would go with the Color Matched

    I like the color match. But that's coming with someone who has the chrome package on his truck and is now trying to get less chrome, so take that for what it's worth.
