    What would you do ?

    okay so I have a small dilema

    Putting turbo rims on my 1.8 europa blue (i think) cabby and I'm in two minds as to what colour i should have the wheels refurbed

    Do I go for standard silver and keep them shiney or do I go for and anthricite (can't spell) and go down the mean and moody road

    I recently painted the calipers red and changing the badges to opel
    (stuck a picture in so u can see the colour of the car as i aint sure what colour it is)

    Opions welcome

    Depends what you like really,
    but i think you're gunna love the look of your car with the larger Turbos Wheels anyway so leave them Silver for a while then when it's time for a refurb sell them or change the colour.

    im not sure its nice with standard silver with the europa blue in your piccy

    but for me its darker colors on the wheels tbh. mines are hyperblack and they look nice with the colour of car i have... but i think as mfivebmw said fire them on as silver see what you think then if you think darker then see what its like

    or even ask one of the lovely people on here if they can photoshop one for ya

    i wouldnt go black as everyone seems to be doing that at the mo, either of the other two would look good tho as the turbo rims looks loads differant than standard in vx finish

    Agreed with kev - Anthracite would look ace i reckon...but as some of the guys said...keep them silver for now to gauge the look.
