    Possible Refurb - Colour Change

    Looking at getting my wheels refurbed as my mate is he getting his comps done by a company at the same time!

    Theres a few little marks here and there on them, but was thinking about a colour change at the same time!

    What do you people reckon, stick with the colour, or go for something different?

    Feel free to do a photoshop of a different colour as im just gathering ideas!

    Heres a few photos of how they are at the mo:

    yer i know!

    Canne be arsed though as that would require me spending more money on either coilovers or some new shocks + springs, and the eibacks that are on there at the mo cost me nout!

    yer i quite like them anthracite when they are dirty! haha!

    Silver on BBS is always a winner and works well on your car... wouldn't go too dark as you lose the nice detail and shape of the wheel...

    If they are being powder coated see if the coaters can do a very high gloss silver / chrome effect - would look sweet imo - and then if you don't like them you could paint the centres a darker colour (nice masking job lol...) and leave the lip shiny.
