Okay, I got my rims mounted yesterday. Before getting them mounted, I struggled with the notion that I had made the wrong choice, as the links below can attest too.

When I first saw them as they opened the boxes I really liked them. I've now had them for a lil less than 24 hours, but I can't help but feel that they could use to be a little less "chromey". My plans are to do the "silver-blackout" shortly, so that will change how they look in comparison to the rest of the rig.

I work in the automotive industry, and a couple of our cars come standard black chrome rims, but have a bit more of matte finish/clear coat on them. So, I could easily get one of our venders to do that for me. But I could still use some other peoples input to help me make my decision. I have asked a few of my trusted friends already what they think, but they don't think the same way people on this forum do.

Ergo, moreover, I am posting pics on here (sorry, it's raining and I am at work now, so not the best photos) to get some additional feedback. So please, be gentle.

Spec's on rims and tires:

Pro Comp Knight Chrome 9089's 18" x 9"
Nitto Terra Grapplers 285/18/60

I have to say, I am really diggin' the "Knight Chrome". Bet they'd look kickass on a TI! Right?? I think someone should photochop those into a Ti and let me drool a little more. Great looking rims! :rocker:

EDIT: I tried it myself in paint and I really need some of these!!!

Those are great lookin. I almost got some Knight Khrome's. But I went a little different look. The bottom line is if you like em thats what counts.

:cheers:

Thanks for the feedback. I think I'm going to leave them as is, and see how well they look once I get my demello skid plate and hybrid rock sliders, blacked out borla, and sliver trim black out done.
