Blacking out wheels w/ chrome trim

I blacked out the wheels on my dark Green Wrangler unl and I love it. Everything else was black. On my Dark green Grand Cherokee the wheels are showing corrosion. I would like to black them out but all the hardware and trim on the GC are chrome. Would it look odd to have black wheels and chrome trim?
I can post pics of needed.

When I first did my TJ wheels I left the lugs and center caps alone. I have since sprayed those black also.

You too can do it in 2 steps if you want to see how it looks.

Sorry, just reread your post, you're referring to vehicle chrome trim. I can't help you there, but I don't think it would look bad.

It shouldn't look bad at all, give it a go, it's obvious that you find it an interesting idea. It's your 'baby' after all.

We agree, the black finish shouldn't look bad at all.

Take a couple photos as it is today, and use a photo editor program to super impose some black wheels.

Black wheels look good on any color vehicle. But, I also think black wheels are way overdone and require no imagination. Personally, I like to be a little different which is why I went with gray wheels.

If I have to explain it, you probably won't understand anyway!
