Chrome looks good on anythying. However, just go with what YOU think looks the best. Its your car, who cares what others think.

This guy doesn't like the black on a bonneville.

I think anything would look good on a silver car.

I like chrome on anything, as long as it isn't to big.
I like black to. It is different than what everybody else has, and I don't like to fit in.
Silver would look awesome on a silver car. The colors match.

BUT... just remember, this is my opinion. I personally am gonna stick with my old honeycombs. That is your car, you do what YOU think will look good. Don't let anybody else change what you think looks good.

You're right guys, I should do what I want. I really like the black ones. I'll have to see how much they cost first, if they're affordable, I'll give them serious thought, but if it'* unaffordable, forget it and I'll look somewhere else. There'* a rim on TireRack that I like I think it'* called the Inox or something like that. I might look into that. and I would post a link to that but tirerack links won't work. I'll keep you updated on my search and I'll keep checking this thread for new opinions and if you guys add a link to a potential rims, I'll check it out. It'* not required of you guys.

Chrome goes with Silver just fine.
I have gotten nothing but complements. These chrome swoops really stand out in the sunlight.

is your car gray or silver? My car is more gray than silver, and i dont like chrome with gray. If it is closer to paul'* color (silver), then crome is OK to me. I LOVE the black with the strip.

Yeah I love the black and the chrome strip, it'* starting to grow on me now. I really HOPE that they're affordable. American Racing won't post the prices on them so I have to go to an authorized dealer to inquire abou the price. Stupid company but good rims.

Lowrider, my car is bright silver, it'* Galaxy Metallic Silver. and to be honest, I'm not even a fan of the swoopies. They're unique, I can say that but I wouldn't put them on my car.

Keep the advice coming, it'* helping me out a lot. I think I'm going to look around for black rims now.

I found another one, I can give you the name of it. but you'll have to go to www.tirerack.com then pick "Pontiac" then"1999" and click on wheels. Then a new page should appear then you need to pick on Bonneville SSE, I know mine is a SE but it has silver as one of its color choice, make sure it'* silver, then I believe it'* the fourth from the right, click on the 16x7 version, I think it looks cool, whatta you think?
