Talking Recommend alternative to chrome wheels

I need some advice on replacing the chrome wheels on my Route 66 Pt.
Bear in mind....chrome door handles, chrome door strip, black door pillars.
Looking for a nice wheel that someone may have purchased. If possible would like a pix, if possible, and place of purchase.

Silver-painted alloy wheels have proven to be just about problem-free to me.
When I damaged one of my stock rims, I went to TireRack and got cheap rims that have stood up very well. Get tires at the same time, and they arrive balanced and ready to bolt on.

I have the silver painted alloys on my white 01(in pic)
with 197,000 miles on them and they still looks good..
even though I prefer shiny chrome or aluminum...
the painted have held up great year round use here in WV
