The black is nice. Makes the tint look darker, or maybe you got tinted for the second photo. But I do like the black more.

One thing I've learned from my father, from aging gearheads, and from building old muscle cars is that black/anodized/powdercoated/etc. wheel trends come and go, but chrome will never die.

That said, I adore black on torch red! It's smart to plastidip it too so that you can just peel it off when you get tired of it.

It depends on the color of the car imo, black looks good on your car, but so does the chrome.

Both look great, but I love the black. How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking, and what type of shop did that for ya?

That is what I want to do with my stock GT rims. I would like to either plasti dip, or powder coat the interior rim black and leave the outer rim with the brushed look.

Never done anything like that before. With your question I assume it isn't a big deal to do yourself? If that's the case I can do it sooner then.

Your car looks awesome with either color but If I had to choose one I'd go with chrome! Just for the cleaner, shiny look

I'd rock the black for a bit, then go back to chrome, then back to black lol. I think the black with a chrome lip would look good also. I guess that's the nice part about plasti dip is that you can pretty much do whatever you want whenever you want!

---------- Post added at 11:23 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:22 PM ----------

I like the black the best though, mostly because you don't hardly ever see a red Mustang with solid black wheels driving around.

I've always preferred the chrome look but a few of my buds are die hard black rims fans. Looks clean either way on your car though.

Go with black. Makes the mirrors grill trims and cowl vent match and make the black on the car stand out better. Plus could never go wrong with black and red

The chrome looks sick!! If you do black get the glossifier for the plastidip. I think gloss black wheels look the best

I like the idea of plastic dipping the center and leaving to lip chrome. But I think I prefer chrome over all matte black for your car.

Dip it and use the glossifier so it is gloss black instead of matte. And leave a chrome lip

If I had the time, I would try taping off the outer lip and plasti dipping the center. I think it would look real nice.
