    Tire rim color,what do you think looks better?(PIC\'S)

    Posted this in the 1st gen. forum,thought I'd post it here too.
    I just got a new set of straight rims.I got them powder coated gloss black.
    At present the rims on my 71 Blazer are the same color as the truck.I'm undecided wether to paint the new rims the same color or leave them black.
    What's your opinion?

    I think Silver would be a better choice also...
    Since it's not a choice, I'd paint them to match the truck...

    If you wanna add horsepower you need to paint them fake chrome w/ a Type R sticker.
    Oh, and I like them matching the truck.
