    Wheels getting refurbed. Black or grey?

    Hey people, just wanting your opinions on the colour of wheels on my car.

    Im getting the wheels refurbished soon and am still in two minds about the colour. Im thinking either grey (anthracite or similar) or gloss black.

    What would you guys choose? Or possibly another colour?

    EDIT: With the wheels gloss black i would colour code the handles/bottom skirt and then paint the bump strips gloss black.

    My car:

    I'd go for grey mate. Think it would really suit the colour of the car.

    grey without question...black would drag the colour down...keep it light.
