I fell in love with the black ones. Chrome is way to flashy for me and it just screams "look at my rims! Aren't they shiny?!?" I like the black stealthy look, it makes it look tough and mean without saying anything. But that's just my .02 cents

Chrome is going out of style. Black looks way meaner and plus they are oe wheels. If you were to do anything, swap out to deep dish black cobras. 10.5 rear with irs bolts. Will combine the looks of both in a way and look really agressive.

Chrome is nice on certain paint jobs, but in your case the black definitely ! It compliments your color.

You have to get cobra wheels regardless. Whether they're chrome or black. Cobra wheels for a cobra. Both look really sick! You should've swapped me wheels man. I would've loved to have some saleens but you didn't wanna take the drive lol.

I will get flamed for this but black wheels make a car look like a piece of shot from more than 30 feet away.

Simple as.

redfire can go many ways, but I like polished/chrome vs black (which is EVERYWHERE)

I almost went with the AFS brand 18" cobra wheels back when I was gonna stay on the cheap side for wheels/tires. They look good for sure.
