Black hides crude, less cleaning, neutral color, look good on everything.

Chrome or polished aluminum with lots of brake dust gives wheels that black chrome look.

Truth.

Since I rarely wash my truck, the brake dust on the wheels goes well with the mud and crud on the rest of the truck.

Thereís also PVD which is *almost* chrome but not quite. Chrome is still best.

Is there really a right or wrong answer? What if I said both depending on the vehicle?

I like chrome. But it really depends on the particular vehicle.

Yes there is. Chrome is the right answer. Everything else is RONG.
