Chrome or Black Chrome?

When I got my car back in May, I wanted to have the stock look with a bit more of a pop. I talked my dealership into making my stock sports chrome. However, a day or two in, I noticed a hole in the chrome on one of the rears. The dealership said they would replace it and sent an order in.

Today I received a call. Since the rims are taking too long on back order, my sales rep offered to replace all four of my stocks with the more pricey black chrome stocks free of charge.

I have a PG 6mt sport coupe on eibachs. Should I take the deal or stay with what I have? Opinions? Pictures?

If it were me I wouldn't even think of putting chrome wheels on a PG G37... but if you must then please go with Black Chrome.

Thanks all. Had the dealership put on black chrome today due to a somewhat unanimous vote.

I will post pictures when I get the chance or when the weather clears up (rainy today).

Is it normal to have black chrome with a slight red tint to it?

Here they are and yes my car is dirty and I need tire shine.

In person, they look a little brown with a very slight red tint up close. From afar, it looks darker, more of the expected gun metal color.
