Re: NEED OPINIONS

I say just go all gloss black on the wheels.... Your truck looks good with black and the I think the gloss black on my DC1s looks great.

Re: NEED OPINIONS

Mirror black is the glossiest and darkest black I've seen.


Super Mirror black, black chrome, etc.. all tend to get some gray or brown hues to them.

Re: NEED OPINIONS

might check the place you were going to have do them and see if they have it. That way you could see it in the light, instead of over a computer screen.
