hubbies or steelies?

Help kind of a random question, but i can't decide if i should take my hubbies off or not!! i kinda like the way the steelies look for some reason, but the hubbies are well...there. I figured steelies for the winter was fine since ill get rims for next summer, but haha i just cant decide if that makes it look even cheaper! i dont know. help?

I don't like the steelies. I usually see them with snow tires in the winter and all dirty. Maybe paint them and chrome lug nuts. That's just my opinion.

leave them black. no problem with running steelies. better than allys in the winter cuz if you curb it the rim can be hammered back into shape (roughly into shape anyway) try that with an alloy, lol.
