    Indecision

    Can't make up my mine on something as simple as wheel centres these days


    These were on the rims when I originally got them...




    I never really like them, as I'm not that partial to the Irmscher badge anyway, and beside the wheels are Team Dynamics.

    So a while back finally got around to looking for something different and got these stick on tat to go over the top....



    Pretty much hated them as soon as they were fitted, so the search went on


    I fiinally fitted thse today after having them sit on the dining table since just after Xmas...




    Still not sure on those either.

    Even, tho I'm not fussed on the Irmscher ones they are the most subtle

    Looks like I'll have to carry on looking

    I think the others are to dark for the wheel but the last one looks good because it is a lighter grey

    Team Dynamic centres would better suit imo

    Geoff I've got an Idea that's crazy enough for you to do.

    Take the last ones and paint the chrome griffin in a dark grey or anthracite.

    Nargh, not fused on that gaz TBH, I've seen colour coded boot badges and IMO it looks like blistered paint. And painting chrome parts that complicated in shape would be pointless, unless I could get nitric acid to strip all the chrome back to plastic.


    here's a piccy with the new centres on

    needs to be something dark so doesnt jump out at you like the chrome,
    spraying the same colour as the wheels would look best imo,

    Not something beyond the master??

    As andy said mate, they jump out with the chrome, and I know how 'anti-bling' you are and how much you like your anthracite
