    Scuffed a wheel, fancy a colour change

    Scuffed a wheel on the way to GTI International......not too bad , but I'm going to repaint them, so I thought I might go for a colour change. I want to go back to black like my old wheels were. I'm thinking all black with a thin yellow pinstripe, but here's some other ideas:

    How they are now (yup needs a clean):


    Black with yellow bolts:


    Black with yellow bolts and centre nut:


    Black with yellow lip (saw a car at inters like this, but not sure it works on my car):


    And finally, my current fav:


    Any other versions people can think of before I make my decision?

    Hi Kev,

    Sorry to hear about the scuff!! Always feels painful!! I think you should go for one of the more simple options. Pehaps the last one? I think all that yellow looks a bit ott (well IMO).

    p.s. well done one the old photoshopping matey.

    OTT? The car is bright yellow :-)

    How about red centres?

    I reckon black/anthracite with a yellow pinstrip, bolts and centre nut! Would look good. Set your car off a treat. IMO the photoshop of that one you did looks the dog's bo*****s! Nice job. Now do it for real!

    Yellow centre...
    Silver or steel grey lip.
    Not polished...painted. Maybe polish the bolts...but yellow centres would look superb, methinks.

    Yellow centres huh?............quite a different look again. I think I'm still tending towards the moody look of dark wheels.

    Wasn't me, as far as I know.

    Yellow centres as the pic above and anodised blue bolts on the rims, your filthy car doesn't do the pic justice, get a clean pic and photoshop the wheels, it will look good!

    I say yellow centres and paint your lower sills and bumpers... would look pretty cool.
