    I need to get a set of wheels referb'd, They are five spoked chunky wheels ,
    I was thinking stock silver ( like most standard alloys)
    However the mrs said why not go for a darker colour?
    The problem is ive never seen a car my colour with darker wheels,
    Does anybody have a picture kicking about?


    Sorry i stand corrected , Ive found one with my old wheels on...

    Satin black always look nice against Noggy Blue, or for me, if you go for the split rim look like above, I like the centers in anthracite.

    Bbs speedlines with liquid yellow centres would look rude

    As i have silver mirrors i was unsure dark wheels would suit it...
    But also im thinking plain silver will be too bland...

    Hmm.. if you want subtle id go anthracite, imo white wheels would look good but my old compo's were a biatch to keep clean and put me off white wheels. Also white with a different colour lip would probs stand out, but like I say it all depends on what look you want.

    I always used to photochop wheels to get a good idea of how they would look.

    That happened about 2 years ago.
    The ones on now cost well over £1000 fitted,
    If i didnt think they suited the car so much i would swap them for anti theft blue ones. but i like em
