    My wheels black or anthracite with yellow glitter dust??

    So we have had a few ideas for my wheels. I mentioned this one and people have said go for it. On my yellow dtm should I have the yellow dust mixed with black or anthracite?

    Unfortunately not, I don't see him that much. It's one you'll have to trust me on. The flecks are very subtle. Have you considered gold flecks??

    Not considered anything. Don't wanna do it with flecks and then regret it. Maybe just a solid anthracite or black is best

    They are really subtle if you go gold flecks and just catch the sun.

    Since you can't see both sides of the car at the same time you could put the gold flecks one side and anthracite the other. Then you get the best of both worlds!

    Go with the yellow or gold flecks as its different and with the thin spokes off the alloys it wont be to in your face and people will notice something is different but not know what when they look at your car,
