This question came up on another thread and I'd like to explore the topic further.
My experience has been that black anodized rims look totally cool for the first hundred miles, then the andozing starts wearing off of the braking surfaces and they look like total cr@p for the rest of their functional lives.
I've read that black ceramic rims may not hold up well either. Seems like that technology isn't quite ready for the masses.
Are there any black rims that STAY black no matter what?
