    Hey guys,

    Getting my std 19" 5 spoke (twins) alloys refurbed totally and need to choose a colour to match the phantom black paint. Any suggestions? Smoked chrome is apparently a good choice

    Thanks all

    How different is it to the standard colour. The wheels have been corrected by the previous owner but they didnt clean the insides before applying laquer so I can never get them spotless...plus i just kerbed one of them. Do you have a pic of yours and where did you get it done? I dont know if to go for a standard look or something unique (but I dont want to risk making the car look cheesy as it's hot as it is!)

    I do like them but I'm not sure if it's too dark for my car. Would it not look a weird offset from the silver coloured wing irrors and chrome grill? The wheels are a lovely bright almost silver colour at the moment, I'm trying to attach pictures but have no idea how to!!!

    Jsws3, how did you get them done for that price??? The wheel specialist quote me around £360 for standard colour on 18's.
