    Matt Black wheels?

    Im thinking of spraying my RS4 alloys matt black, and also painting the callipers red. what do you guys think of this look?
    Do you think it would look to chav?

    I'd go antracite, dont think you would really 'see' the alloys in matt black - if that makes sense
    51 plate Audi S3 - Silver with Bose, Symphony 2, Armrest and of course Rs4's.....

    Ist Audi after 8 VW's in a line......

    Think they would be too dark for the paintwork of your car personally

    Find that darker wheels on Green cars really dont go well

    Black calipers and red wheels!! LOL


    I think the satin black would be nice, and you could try a red stripe round the lip to mirror the calipers. There were some CHs on ebay a while back done in theis scheme and they looked excellent, not at all chavvy or Ricey as you may think!

    go for it!

    Would be interested to see how it looked.

    My car is Grey and I'm considering getting some RS4's and spraying them matt or satin black, but its hard to imagine if it would look good.


    What do you think? Black RS4's on a Grey 1.8T?

    Sorry to hijack your thread by the way

    I found matt black to just look dirty to be honest. A ***** to keep clean as well! I'd go satin

    A few pics of mine with black audi RS4's on. They were originally the same colour as the car but i felt it was a little too much grey so changed the.

    No AIR here!


    Thats my daily ride height on coil overs, the ride is OK given the amount it's lowered and i have never found any where where i can't get down or go yet (even my girl friends farm track poses no issues)


    But i did have a mk2 golf with a vr6 (very low sump) before so i guess i drive accordingly.


    I want some news wheels for it but im being sensible with the pennies at the moment.
