    yea i think your right jon, too dark and it seems too much of a contrast(black)
    antracite sounds most popular

    Use SEAT Platinum grey

    then it's easy to get a touch up :icon_thumright:

    Ive already had my OEM RSTT's refurbed and i really wish i had got them gun metal or what ever colour you call it. There was a really smart S3 in the classifieds on here with new S4 rims that colour and the mirrors matched too. Looked extremely cool without being too flashy. I think black on silver would be a bit too much?? Have thought about black aswell though! I cant decide!!!

    Timely discussion for me, in the process of refurbishing some RSTT’s, don’t want to go with the usual silver, my car is black, so don’t want to go too dark, probably half way between silver and anthracite. I’m thinking about doing the inner part of the wheel in a matt back but concerned it may make the wheels look ‘thin’.
