IMHO: Polished.

I know alot of other people here like them black though.

Black, lower it, tint the tails and get nice dark covers for the headlights, then have a stealth button installed:)

haha, and have all red light interior for low detection ...I could go for the murdered out look, I'd like to keep a little of the chrome accents and add perhaps a black front windshield visor with maybe an SRT red logo?

I like them stock, but then my wheels already match the color of my car.

I was considering doing the black thing to my stock rims as well....but after seeing that picture, ill leave it the way it is.....thanks for posting that, you saved me some wheel painters remorse!.....I like black rims on a black car but the stock wheels i think seem to look cheap painted black...they remind me of the black steelies on the police chargers.....

maybe if the black was a higher gloss black? a little more shiny or reflective, would look better than that in the picture ...the pic looks like a flat or matte finish ...and probably the lug nuts would be chrome to stand out a bit.

I think that would make all the difference in the world.....would probably look great gloss black or anything close to the exterior paint....

now that looks nice ...how did they get the outer part unpolished? was it machined finished? or taped off? looks nice ...I like it ...I might do the same but without the red.

I would have to say that charger looks sick I guess cause its mine :) All kidding aside I kept my stock set so i have both black and polished. I get a ton of compliments on the black yet no one even notices the stockers...
