    Tbh I'd say the Bentley's are too fussy, number 5 (BBS with silver inner lip) looks fantastic. Nicely matches the mirrors etc...

    i would leave it the way it is at the moment. i personally do not like any of the other options. the bentley rims look awfull & the BBs in black well the car is too black.

    10 out of 10 with the photoshop ,
    loving the bently wheel ,looks the dogs.....
    how much would these wheels set you back and how easy would they
    be to get hold of? 2ndly i would keep your wheel in black with the silver
    lip which look good aS well.
