Wallpaper website using logos

I'm in the process of designing a web site offering free desktop wallpapers. I'm guessing the answer is no, but can I use car logos and other logos on my wallpapers providing that I'm not making any money from them?
 
Should I contact the companies and ask for permission or is it a definite no?
 
Thanks in advance, Sue.

I believe you guessed right.  You can infringe even if you aren't selling the item.  You could contact the companies if you like wasting your time.

If the companies are contacted and told of the non commerciallity of the project and do not reply, can that silence be viewed as a waiving (at least temporarily) of rights.

What "silence is assent"?
 
No.  There are so many other things you can do, don't step on a land mine.
 
And what happens if someone sees the free logos, then uses them for commerical sale.  If the company goes after them they are going to say where they got them first.
