    Advice....

    my wheels need a refurb so thinking may aswell get them painted another colour aswell,

    this is how it looks at the moment (well old picture)



    and this is the type of colour i had in mind...maybe a little lighter...



    what do you all think? look better/worse/another colour would be better?

    also does anyone know of anywhere near me that could do it? heard some people say www.wickedwheels.co.uk are good but others said they arn't go guess it depends on which person does it? any recommendations would be nice

    Not a fan of black wheels... anthracite looks awsome on silver cars though, go for it.

    lol old pictures when i was on lunch from work....

    was thinking anthracite kind of colour, just not sure, would be easier to keep clean but i guess if they got kurbed would look even worse as the paint would come off....

    would like to see some pictures of some other silver cars with them,

    that is gorgeous, but i think the tinted windows, irmscher grille, carbon B pillar stickers, and silver bump strips etc help alot,

    i plan the grille, and painting the strips and handles,

    now thinking it might be better black rather than antracite and antracite could look just like dirty wheels, black looks like black wheels,
