    Question colour of my wheels?

    Ok I got the sport rims on Friday and they need a refurb as there not the best set in the world and one has had a badly done touch up (looks like a crayon was used!!)

    So im just deciding what to do with them, weather to get a nice new layer of silver or go for a pale anthracite or deep moody shade of anthracite!

    The photoshops just to give you a idea of colours – the picture of the wheel on its own is just a idea also

    Vote Away!

    Kev

    light


    dark


    silver


    rim on its own – a example

    Personally, I'm thinking silver Kev. I quite like a contrast. Wheels look great either way, really suit it.

    Definatly silver, like others have said, dark wheels look like they need a good cleaning. If your going to go dark, go the whole way and black them out.
