I hopped on GTA V today to try and find a Coil Voltic (I was unsuccessful and turned off the game when it never showed up) and just to be a retard, I got a Baller and painted it chrome with chrome wheels. It looked terrible and I couldn't help but crash it everywhere I went.

I like chrome when it's used tastefully, not when some moron with a barbed wire tattoo goes to autozone and buys up all the cheap chrome stick on parts. Same goes for chrome wraps, they just look excessive and tacky stupid.

 

Chrome bumpers and accents on old schools look good. Even the right aftermarket chrome wheels can look nice. Point is that you can't overdo chrome or else you look like a no talent rapper with insecurities that's sure to be broke and irrelevant within the next 6 months.

i may just start using that line

I think the Z Type looks good with chrome as a secondary color.

Chrome as rims would be amazing. But as a Secondary it can work, primary? not really.

And blacked out cars look tacky and overdone too. Atleast try to be a little creative and throw an accent of chrome, like chrome lipped rims or something.

Yeah, all black is a little overused and in my opinion the best secondary chrome would have to go to the blade

Chrome wouldn't look so bad if the cube map wasn't so sh*t. Then again last gen limitations.

Or maybe they just don't know how to properly make cube maps.

usually hate it

 

sometimes it's a good secondary paint option

 

diamond bluish silver Turismo R with secondary chrome paint just around the windows looks pretty damn classy

 

black Alpha with chrome or gold trim along the bottom looks pretty bad ass too

 

but pure chrome Adder? ack

All chrome is a bit much, but when used as a secondary I think it's fine.

I think it looks good as a secondary colour. It goes well with the metal paints.

There are *SOME* cars it looks good on - cars like the Stinger GT and the Adder.

But I think a good portion of the cars in this game have no business running it as a primary color. Namely any muscle car or sedan. It just looks horrifically out of place.

Agreed! I don't understand why they let you respray the car chrome but didn't add an option to paint the wheels chrome. Sure some of the wheels are chrome by default but there's only about 5 out of the 60 or so wheel choices available. The only time i've ever painted the car chrome was as a joke on cars i want to purposely make look bad.

There are some cars that look good in it.

 

But I dislike it because it is normally associated with the people who drive around a chrome Adder, shoot on site and have rhino tanks in the down town area....

 

I would take the gold paint jobs over the chrome in a heart beat simply because they look less tacky

Chrome is tacky. Not to mention its just ugly in general. Same for gold.

 

A little chrome can be ok but a full paint job option is stupid.

In moderation sure i do like it. Honestly fully matte black cars looks just as terrible as fully chrome cars to me, and you see plenty of both online.

 

But hey to each their own

I still feel the need to say f*ck you since i have a fully matte black Zentorno but I think i might change it to green just cause that's my favorite color.

Chrome as the primary color is absolutely horrid. As a secondary color it's not so bad (depending on what the primary color is). Matte is also pretty bad especially if the color is anything other than black.

I think chrome/metals only look good as secondary paints, like on the Alpha for example.
