Question Decisions Decisions!!!

Black rims or chrome on an Obsidian Black CLS500?

For ease of maintenance as well as looks...which is a better rim to go with? Are chrome rims that hard to maintain? We all know about the brake dust so I am leaning towards black because hosing down the rims at the end of the day is not so practical. Thanks guys!

Black with the chrome lip would look very clean. You wouldn't have to worry too much about brake dust on the face of the rim and to wipe down the chrome lip only takes a second. I think you'd really like that setup and it would be fairly easy to maintain. Good Luck and post some pics when you decide and get them on.
