Thanks for everyone's opinion! I thought about doing black cause of everything on my car is black but I'm stuck between them matching my paint or black matching all the add on's like top/ headlights/tail lights/ chin spoiler/ mirrors/ ect.

I have 10.5 rears I thought about doing mine black or black chrome.
I would do either chrome or black for your. Just depends on what you want a black out look or a clean black on chrome look both would be nice.

I really want to paint mine black or black chrome but I'm not sure how black chrome would look on my color.
Either of the 2 would look great on your car.

Thanks man I appreciate it. From my research they didn't make many mineral gray verts in 01 I have seen a couple cobra and saleen 01 mineral gray's but not to many Gt mineral gray verts.
I like how it looks with the rims matching the paint but it looks kind of stock and the black looks really good to and gives it a aftermarket look.

Well I decided tonight to paint my wheels black chrome it's $20 for a 11oz can and comes with a clear coat. From my wheels being so dark already it was hard to hide the other color so I used a whole can just for 1 wheel. And it doesn't even look black chrome it looks black so tomorrow I'm just going to buy some real good black gloss and re paint them black.

I think the black with chrome look is really different and will give you extra attention. Good attention...
