yes those "normal" rims you are speaking of are probally chrome...and chrome is supposed to have a better "gripping" surface for braking...reason why you see chrome rims in the back and black in the front for a lot of riders with brakes out there...
but black works good for brakes too..
and anyways...odyssey has that dulatjfdlaytou rim that is black but has the stopping power of a chrome...if you want to dish out the 84 bucks a rim for it.

no actually i think normal rims are silver i dont really think of chrome to be normal but anyways if you have soft brake pads between silver, black, and chrome rims is not a big difference in braking but if the pads are hard or even kinda hard, then it does make a difference. i havent been able to tell a difference between my old black rim and my well now chrome rim, used to be smoked chrome, with the soft tacky pads i got now
