    TODAYS THE DAY!!!

    Morning peeps,

    Todays the day i take the s3 wheels to lepsons!

    now i have decided to get them refurbed in metalic gloss black, so please can i have some opinions on this, as i need to build myself up for it. lol

    the tyres that are going on the wheels are, continental contact 2 sports profile 40!

    so please try and imagine what they will look like on my silver a3 which has been lowered all round its about 15cm from the tyre.... all round, so try to imagine and let me know what you all think.

    cheers

    chris

    Sorry Herby1, I am sure they will look good! I believe Dave B & ChriS3 have both done the matt black on the RS4 wheel, which looks good!

    Yup you're thinking of the doc

    One thing i will say is you would not believe how quickly gloss black wheels get dirty.

    So just clean the silver bits!

    If I am too lazy to wash the car, I do the next best thing and just clean the wheels and mirrors!

    Well your not wrong, but somethings you should not admitt to!

    Cleaning your tailpipe I think maybe one of them!

    I find if it starts turning a little black, Wonder Wheels cleans it up perfectly!

    IMO, Black wheels look good when they're clean but they're difficult to keep that way. Plus you need to keep the tyre sidewalls black and shiney otherwise it seems to make the wheels look smaller.
