    Got to Agree Anthracite would look really good!

    If not that then Hyper Silver or Similar, Defo not White or Black!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    I'd go for high power silver (I assume thats the same as hyper silver) as i think it'd be a good contrast.

    is it true that wheel refurb companies are not able to match manufacturer's wheel colours? think silver would be more suitable, tho Jiraffe's gsi look's quality with the anthracite wheels.

    oh and do the gsi alloys only come in 5 stud??
