I'm 50 and very much hate the black wheel fad. My kids on the other hand, love them!
I think the black wheel thing arose from the import / tuner crowd - often they buy older cars and do all the typical things and buy used aftermarket wheels.dont know why the hate for chrome. back in the 70s most of us had cragars on our cars before they had 5k on them. Challenger is suppose to look old school and even the factory rims back then had chrome rings. Black is fine on a mustang or camaro. They dont look old school anymore either. Or on some turbo rice rocket but the only black wheels on challengers back in the day were someones beat up rims they spray painted and even then seldom black or gold. Only challenger i ever saw that looked good to my eyes with those brass monkeys is a f8 hell cat wide body just like the picture above. Purple? Chrome all the way.
the other matter is you can't reliably chrome plate over aluminum. The plating flakes off.Hi again,
One reason for the lack of Chrome in today's cars is the EPA regulations, makes it costly and not many places want those chemicals in their backyard.
At least white is a contrast to the black tire, even if they left a gray ring on the black rims I think it would help as my wife's Jeep is that way and it doesn't bother me as much as the all black offerings on the Challenger.
Either way get what you like when someone else foots the bill then let them decide.
