    How about having the main centre part the same colour they are now and the rest of the wheel in the colour of the bodywork of your car? Not quite sure how this would look,but someone on the forum might have a go at some sort of photo editing to show you how it looks..:think:

    I'd say just darken them a couple of shades, not too dark though.

    And defo not body coloured.

    You need to spend a few hours on photoshop Danny...

    Don't paint them black. Personally I like the silver they are now, is it possible to go lighter? If you're going to save them for summer wheels you could have them polished, about £1000 a set from what I recall, would look the dogs dandies though!

    How would a dull gold look? If you know what I mean

    If I had £££ to throw around I think it'd be an interesting project. DTM with a roll cage and all other associated rally paraphernalia... would definitely turn some heads!

    Get them done silver again but the brightest, shiniest silver you can, I'm not a fan of dark wheels....

    I reckon they're pretty spot on as they are. Anything else is just gonna spoil them and the car.

    Maybe just a subtle glitter in the lacquer?
