Default Black solid steel or window rims?

I have a camo clays edition and I want to move up from the stock 20x11x10 to 22x11x10 - would you go with black solid or window rims? Anyone willing to guess if this will show an increase in speed?

Got any pic's? Going from 20's to 22's should really notice that much of a change in speed. Just a little.

If you do any mudding the windowed rims are a little
easier to clean.

If you have enough horsepower you will get about 10% (2mph) more speed and a 10% reduction in torque.

HEhe, nice, Chevy. I think that must be the closed window rims. Seen the open window rims out there lately?

I believe this is the same wheel that was shown at the SEMA show in 2006. It was a one off project, is clear acrylic and is functional. The manufacturer was Forgiato.

Here's the photo from the SEMA Show:



Here's another:
