    Alloy refurb needed ... but what colour?

    Well, have decided that I am going to keep my alloys now, but after kerbing 2 alloys very very badly earlier, they need a refurb ... but I really don't know what colour to do them in, so was looking for suggestions.

    The car, Black H 5 door with black grill, black boot strip, smoked lights, smoked side repeaters.

    Based on how "black" the whole car is, initially thought of going dark, but not too sure. Going to have a go at a couple of photoshops and see what happens.

    imo don't go black/dark grey its to much on a dark coloured car, go for a shade of silver but again not to dark

    Will be done by a pro Danny, not going to attempt them myself!

    Thanks for the link Danny, will bear them in mind.

    Just got to find a cheap set of alloys to bung on the car whilst mine are off for refurb.
