    Keep them as they are. Nothing wrong with the 'clean' silver look of alloy wheels.

    oddjob has got some in anthracite

    Agreed they look good as they are, but if you fancy a change then I think they will look cool darker as well.

    I really like the look of oddjobs wheels, thats the colour i would go for if i have them done, they look very similar to the colour on the manaro wheels which i know looks dam sexy against red! Only thing is the guy he used is abit far for me to travel to!

    Sorry I much prefer the silver look against red.

    They stand out more and that is one of my fav coupe's....

    Go for bigger brakes though....... 308's or bigger

    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    Thanks mate, I do like the silver, just i caught one of the wheels last weekend & thought rather than paying to have just one repaired, maybe i could have all 4 done in a different shade! Bigger brakes will happen when they need changing aswell.

    Wouldnt ever go black, not keen on it tbh, goodnews though, spoke to a guy who can do anthracite, but said he will mix in as much silver as i like if i thought it was to dark to get it just how I liked it. Oh & nearly forgot, only £45 a wheel aswell!
