Chrome is "rice"

Why do most comments about chrome rims say they are "rice". Most all factory upgrades for rims are chrome for both import (Nissan, Mazda, and others) and domestic cars. I don't understand why a clean design chrome rim would make your car "rice". I am considering having my 17" HFP rims chromed. Without any crude remarks or jokes please explain. Thanks !!!

chrome on sporty cars is rice. havent we outgrown chrome yet?

eevn honda understands that chrome should not go on the coupes because they are viewed as sporty.
