Got standard vauxhall wheels that came on the 1998 LS astra, the ones with the small holes around the perimeter. Every other time I've seen them, they are black and therefore the owner can put silver trims on and it looks ok. But mine are silver, so silver trims look garbage.
Would like alloys, but got a wedding to save for, and apart from the intial outlay, theres the extra cost on insurance (the mrs wont have not letting them know!)
So anyway, what I thought is to remove the trims I have on now, sand the wheels down so they look almost perfect, then paint them a glossy black, cake them in lacquer and put new vauxhall centre caps on.
I can picture it in my head, and assuming I take my time with the paint job, I think it will look pretty smart. Whats everybodys opinion on this idea? Surely it cant look that bad! And as long as it's done properly, I think I can avoid crossing the border into Tackyland!
