Default Black or Chrome?

I have a 2013 regular cab short bed express that is black. My plan is to put the SRT-10 22" wheels and a 2/4 drop on it. I'm trying to decide if I should get the black or chrome/polished wheels. It's driving me insane! I keep thinking I have decided but then change my mind again. What do you all think? any pictures and input would be awesome, Thank you.

I say get chrome, but not polished aluminum. Polished never shines as good as chrome. JMO

My preference is chrome for a street truck. But everything is chrome on mine...lol. Just got to keep it all clean and looking good. If your not planning to put much more accenting chrome on it, then a mix of chrome wheels with black in them would look really sharp.

I prefer the black wheel look but my ram is black with black rims. so I obviously like the blacked out look.

Definitely black. Chrome looks good on black, but black looks more gooder!

I vote for chrome. Chrome rims look great on a black truck IMO.

I'd go with the black. I have the Black Express, looks good. Check out my album for pics.

Thanks for the input everyone. I'm still deciding but leaning towards the chrome. I know a few do not like the look of the SRT 22's but I really like the look. A very classy yet stock look.
