Default Grabber orange mustang Black or chrome wheels?

I cannot decide which look better! I have black racing stripes and much of the car trim is black so the black wheels would look nice, but do I want the show stopping bling of chrome? Ive looked at many pictures and cannot decide. What do you guys think?

black ALL THE WAY!!! Looks like a coral snake or some kind of exotic reptile with the stripes! Just saw a GT today with a '67 Shelby style grill (fog lights close to each other in the middle) with black wheels and stripes.... grabber orange like yours,

just looked AMAZING!

Don't care for chrome on a car. You see it too much as it is. So go black.

Black is a whole lot easier to take care of than chrome. If something happens just get out the touchup paint and your done. I just put stealth black God Speed Omegas on mine and love the look!

Here is the easiest way I know to see the difference between black & chrome. The chrome look good but nowhere near as good as the black.

Chrome! (I say this just for the sake of an argument, and I have chrome wheels on my Grabber Orange GT.)

I always loved black... then someone told me "The reason I don't like black is they always look dirty...even when they're clean". From then on...that's all I think of. For some reason I agree...now I see them and think they look dirty. I have seen some wheels that were actually black chrome...those looked sweet.

But when black is clean nothing holds a candle to it.
Oh and kiss your social life away if you dd chrome rims, mine had me spending a few hours a week trying to clean them constantly. The 2010 GT500's I run I like way more

How about a combination? I was wanting chrome wheels and I have sorta decided on the 2010 GT black/chrome wheels from american muscle. But if it is one or the other, on a grabber orange I would go black too
