you should go w/the polished bolts.

the black bolts just introduce another color and i think it looks out of place.

Thanks for your opinions guys. Now that i got the wheels at home (in the living room ) and looked at them a couple of times, i begin to like the chrome rivets more and more.
In person the wheels look less yellowish than in the picture and the chrome rivets match the wheels better then it seems when lookin at the picture

BTW: the wheels are 9x20 ET32 and 10.5x20 ET38, if you like i could make a couple of better pictures....
I will install them in 1 or 2 weeks, but at the moment we have heavy snowfall here in Switzerland

Here's a perspective:

The chrome lip enhances the black bolts as a double illusion. The chrome bolts don't reflect off the chrome/polished finished of the lip.


Stick with chrome. Although I would love to see some photoshop of both on your car!

I am not a fan of chrome either. But I would have to say stay with the chrome bolts in your case.

I think you are fortunate that they made a mistake with your order. Not a fan of gold wheels but the wheel looks MUCH better with the chrome bolts

I'd have to put my vote toward black bolts. I'm not sure why it looks good to me, but I've seen VSXX wheel on a white car in gold and black rivets and it just looks good too. However, I'm pretty sure the gold rivets will look great on your AW as well.
