Which one do you like better for the avalanche? How about on a gold av, chrome or black?

I always thought black would be nice, but after seeing a couple on a SOM, I've switched back to looking for chrome.

I've never been a big fan of black rims. Chrome always looks Classy and stands the test of time. Chrome never goes out of style.
Have you considered Color Matched Centers??

I've never cared for gold rims on ANYTHING, just doesn't look right to me.

Chrome looks good on just about everything, but some trucks can really pull off going black.

Of course all of this is just MHO.

I would have to see the truck itself.  You could pull off black or chrome rims with no problem.  Gold would not look right.

Same here except for the lug nuts and the chrome in the headlights...
