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.

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.

Obama whines that we don't build stuff like the Hoover Dam anymore. With his EPA in charge nothing CAN get built.....ANYMORE!

If you put the Obama administration in charge of the Sahara desert they would find a way to run out of sand in a year....-ME!

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.

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
