i had to get a new back wheel as my hub exploded on my old one the only one my lbs had was chrome so i got it now i have a chrome back rim and a black front should i get a chrome in the front to match or keep it black
also if i run solid brake pads one that dont squeak will it ruin the chrome

keep it black or go chrome. i've had all the matches. chrome to black. black to yellow. yellow to white. white to red. green to purple. red to blue. white to white but turned pinkish with my blood. about to go yellow to black

its all personal opinion but i say go for strength or run it till it breaks then upgrade

If your Bike works well, then you don't need to change anything.

Black in the front and chrome in the back is OG.

I thought it was pretty tight back then but now I just really hate mix-matched wheelsets.. I gotta use a temporary single wall, unsealed Eastern front wheel right now as spare for a couple weeks and I already hate that enough. It's black but the nipples are silver..
