    Turbo rims in metallic anthracite.

    Hi All,
    Finally got my Astra Turbo 17" rims back from being refurbished. Finished in metallic anthracite and wearing AVON ZZ3 rubber. See pics before and after. Will try to get a decent picture of them on the car later.
    Thanks to Oddjob for finding the part number for the "charcoal" centre cap and saving me a whole load of agro trying to get the colour matched. Not a perfect match but fairly good for off the shelf.
    ZZ3s feel fairly sticky and definitely seem quiet in terms of road noise!






    Cheer, A Very Happy Chappy

    They are not 100% perfect but they are pretty good. Two were really badly scraped, one was dented on the inside and the other not too bad. The guy never promised to make them perfect, so I am pleased with the job and you can't notice anything from a couple of feet back.

    Nice refurb job, but I'd call them steel grey not anthracite

    Wheels refurbished in Flaunden just outside of Amersham, Bucks.

    It is difficult to get a picture that shows the true colour.

    Cheers, Shaylo.

    Glad to see the centre cap is a fairly close match. I've got ZZ3s on mine, certainly a lot less road noise than my old Pirelli P7000s, seem to be fairly good both in the wet and dry.

    Here is a pic with them on the car.

    OK, so I need to get the rest of the centre caps!
