    Standard Silver or Black alloys on Ibis White S3 - With Pics and Poll

    Hey guys, i posted over in the A3/S3 8P forum about plasti-dipping my wheels but im after a general idea of what people think before i do, i know its my opinion that matters at the end of the day but id like a few from you guys...

    So heres my wheels currently:




    And heres my attempt at photoshopping the wheels... cant see the disks very well but still.




    Debating whether to change the calipers colour too... but everyone has red or black, and white is different

    Ive added a poll so you can choose, other than that, thoughts?

    Couldnt agree more, silver and white contrast isnt good... i saw another member had these wheels in black over on the 8P3 forum, looked amazing.

    I would stay silver or to add another flavour into the mix, i would go charcoal, the 2nd pic with the black wheels look like they have disappeared! Lol.

    Definitely going for black alloys ive decided, i have yet to see a car which doesnt look awesome with black alloys, guess the question is now just which colour calipers...

    had black - cant see them
    had red - screams chav
    got white now - looks different but not sure...
