    Refurb colour help needed

    Well my wheels will be going in for refurb either January or April depending if I have enough time to do so before I go to sea. One of the main problems though is deciding what colour to get the centres. I was going to get the centres cream so that it would give me an excuse to get some cream leather interior. But now I am having second thoughts.

    Anyone got any ideas I will be keeping the polished lips on them It will just be the centres getting sprayed.

    Cheers

    The wheels in question

    Was thinking about it did I post up that I was or did mark say?

    Will know for certain when I get my steelies banded and see what they look like on the motor. Might just keep the mercs for shows.

    Chianti sounds like a good idea just didn't want it to be too much of the same colour.

    Would you fancy them if I got rid of them?

    yup it was Mark who mentioned it

    I would defo be interested but my wheels will be refurbed soon anyway so if they were up for sale id be interested instead of refurbing mine if that makes sense - dont think i can afford both.....

    in reality however, wheels are the least of my worries so common sense would have to prevail me thinks!


    i think chianti would look good - seen it on euro motors before but dunno if it would be a bit OTT

    No worries mate just not sure if I want to sell them yet think I will keep them for special occasions. Don't want to go OTT on the car as I want it to look clean. Had a thought last night of gloss black or a dark gunmetal grey. But I am now thinking that it would take away from the look I am trying to achieve.

    Hows your car coming along anyway mate?
