    Painting alloys

    Ok at present I want to paint my standard coupe 16" alloys in anthracite has anyone painted their wheels (any type of wheel) if so how hard is it?

    Or do you think I would be better off saving getting some snowflakes then painting them?

    Dont waste ur time n money on the 16s is my advice....save for some 17/18/19s is what id do.

    16s just look too small on any Astra - let alone the Coupe with its massive arches - the anthracite will make em look even smaller - Not a wise move IMO
