Black Chrome rims?
When i Bought my Jk last month, i noticed a Unlimited outside with these amazing rims.... best way i could describe them were that they were Black Chrome....

they looked hot as hell, and i had an idea that they would look great on my Black 2 door that has the Chrome package... with a twist.

the front grill thats chrome i would match (if i found the rims that is) in the same black chrome style...
ill HAVE to find a pic of the rims... they looked amazing...

Funny you should bring this up... Saw this on The Power Block this past weekend...

Advance Auto Parts: SHADOW™ Chrome Black-Out Coating by Duplicolor - Part SHD1000

They applied it to wheels - and it looked hawt... Just unsure of durability - but for a grill I would imagine it would be fine.

Looks like they would get all scratched pretty easy if off-roading

my black chromes did scratch pretty easy, they do have a clear coat on them but polished up they were sickkkk, i had all terrains on them and they were 22's, the shop had to trim my bumbers so they would fit :) but seriously who offroads in a yukon anyway.. oh wait that would be me!!!

Svoloshin 08-31-2010 04:35 PM

Went back to the dealership to see the rubicon that had the rims, and its gone now. :( dammed if i can find those rims again... sigh

does anyone know if they actually make the grills like that as well? i have the chrome one now, but dam i would like to see how it would look like with the knight chrome instead.
