Black or chrome???

Whats up guys! Im getting some 35s (still debating what kind so suggestions are welcome) but where I'm torn is to get black or chrome wheels??? I drive a 2006 wrangler rubicon black everywhere with a 4inch lift. Right now i have 33" pro comp tires around their 7069 black series wheel. Im selling those shoes and getting new ones. Im looking for a good all terrain tire. Tell me what you guys think!!!

I say chrome could look good with the clear turn signals. Also take into account where you live. Massachusetts. If the black wheels get rusty, wouldn't it seem easier to repaint them than chrome? I might be wrong but just something to think about. I think either would look good for your Jeep but you might get some negative comments from "hardcore Jeepers" if you go with chrome. Honestly if I change my wheels, since my XJ is white, I'd be tempted to go with chrome. I think it all depends on your preference and the image you want to give your Jeep: Mall crawler moneymobile, waxed weekly, OR hardcore off road rig. But that doesn't really matter because only you know if it never leaves pavement or if it gets beat on daily, not that there's anything wrong with either option...Honestly I think your Jeep would look good with both, but I'd go with chrome to stand out...

Plus if you're gonna spend the money to change wheels, you could get chrome and switch back and forth if you felt the urge to...Oh, and I hear good things about the Duratracs from what I've read.

On a black jeep I've always prefered Chrome, aluminum, or Mineral Gray/Argent over black everything. Not a huge fan of the flat finishes like titanium. The contrast helps make them stand out a bit.

Matte black steel wheels are easy to touch up if you are rough on them.

Polished or brushed aluminum. If you end up getting tired of it you can plasti dip them in almost Any color then go back by peeling it off.

15 inches are a very common size, so they would probably have more all-terrain and off road tire options than 17s...I'm not sure about 16s

i think 17s are the way to go when running 35s unless someone can prove me wrong
