Default Black Vs Chrome wheels

Hey guys. I'm having a little trouble deciding on wheels so I thought Id pick your brains a bit. I was figuring on buying black wheels because I thought they'd be easier to take care of but they kind of seem misplaced on a big horn (chrome bumpers, grill, and door handles). So now ive been thinking about chrome again to match the look a little better. Any thoughts on either combo would help. Thanks!

I had the chrome clads & i decided to minimize the chrome look
I decided to go black & aluminum

I still don't know if i like the chrome over the new rims, both get dirty quickly, mostly brake dust

My Ram seems to sit lower with the new ones, i know that is just an illusion

Looks good! The only thing I worry about is the black clashing with all the chrome that's already on the truck.

I was thinkin the exact opposite

But honestly to the OP. It's all personal preference. I like black wheels on white and black trucks. I have a red truck and went with chrome just cause i think it's a good match. (although GTYankee's truck looks pretty awesome with the black trim to set off the wheels).

I've got a black 2010 big horn that I put black wheels on and I wish now I would have done chrome to help with the contrast a bit. Ive got 10% tints all around and smoked brake lights so my whole truck is black except for the bumpers grill and door handles. I still like my black wheels but think I'd have liked chrome better. A big factor for me was the awesome deal I got on them, too good to pass up.

Thanks for replies. I think right now I'm leaning toward chrome incubus recoils.
