    Unhappy Wife curbs alloy shocker!!

    Had my MK1 S3 with RS4 alloys for less than a week and my Wife has curbed the front offside alloy big time!! I can’t believe it, she only went 5 mins up the road...
    Anyway after I calmed down and looked up my nearest alloy wheel repairer, I was thinking maybe I could have them painted Black? My car is Dolphin Grey.


    Does anyone have a picture of a Grey S3 with black RS wheels they can post for me? I think it might look good it I de-chrome the grill also?

    First post here so hi to you all!

    The wheels will definitely look a lot better in a dark grey or anthracite colour, and the grille DEFINITELY looks better without the chrome surround.

    If you do a search, you'll find plenty of pics.

    Sorry to hear about your alloy...

    Before thinking about spraying them i'd get it off the car and giving the inside a good clean and have a look for hairline cracks, also around the center bore.
    A friend of mine hit a curb, to what we thought was just a nasty scrape but had actually damaged the structure of the wheel and we found a 30cm crack in the flat part of the rim.. Dangerous stuff.

    However I will add it was a replica alloy, but never can be sure.

    Also a big fan of the darker alloys, anthracite or satin black would have to be a favourite but think the Satin black would look against the dolphin grey.
