    tire rim color,which one do you think looks better(PIC\'S)

    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?

    My personal take on Chevy Rally rims is that they look best either in Argent Silver or body color keyed. I've never thought that black did them justice unless the vehicle were black (even then, I prefer Argent Silver wheels on a black car). Maybe I'm just hung up on the way that the factory did things...

    Then again, it is your truck and you're the only one who needs to be happy with it. Choose what floats your boat and the heck with what the rest of us think.

    I normally like Black rims on just about anything...
    However I have to go with Steve on this one. It looks great the way it is...paint them body color.

    Bob,

    I don't really like the black ones....it seems to "hide" the details of the wheel.

    Color matching them to the truck can be cool, or a nice silver finish like Steve suggested would be very tasteful and preserve the more "classic" look that your truck has.

    Tori,yup I'm still here in Ca.I'm not sure about making the Memorial W/E.Over the last 3 months I've been consumed with my truck doing the body and paint.The wife is getting a little peturbed.
    We work every weekend anyway.
    I should make it to Blazer-Fest 4 though.

    As for the rims,thanks for the opinions.I'm leaning towards repainting them the same color as the truck.

    Bob as a fellow I say go Black! Silver looks too plain. Black makes them stand out from the rest of the truck!

    man be careful, from what I heard once you go black, you never go back... but that would be my choice as well.
