Which look ?

This is my old blacked out jeep.
The new brilliant black one with 22s.
Can't decide if I should black it out or not

Please don't black out those 22's. If anything just do the chrome molding on the doors.

I would black out just the chrome trim, doors, windows, front and back lip, and leave the sweet 22's chrome, but if you're using plasti-dip, you should try and if you don't like peel it off, my 0.02.

Blessed by the BEST!!!

Why not both? I have my winter tires on pxr black wheels & my summers on the shiny ones. Kinda breaks up the look a bit just for a change.

I love the all black jeeps with chrome rims look...never can go wrong! I actually just ordered up my FR chrome 22's with Vreds from Skip just yesterday and can't wait for them! I know a lot of the guys go for the "murdered" look, but I personally love the chrome! Make them hear it from afar, then see it sparkle from afar, and have them jaw drop as u roll by!

I've had it both ways. Murdered on gloss black 22"s and now chrome 22"s. I got a little tired of the all black and think the chrome breaks the truck up just enough. Plus the 22" in black doesn't look as big in diameter as the chrome. Weird optical illusion against the black tires I guess. Bottom line...you can't go wrong!!
