    I know but they were chemically stripped back to bare metal then primered even and rubbed down to get me an ultra smooth look that I wanted, they have out some real work in to these wheels it's just been unfortunate that the paint has reacted :(

    I love black alloys! .. Everyone I know say they don't like black because it hides the wheels but I really do like them.. Your car looks good with them to :)
