    Original colour for me mate

    saying that anthracite could work too

    I think 1 piece wheels in black just blend into the tyre too much

    still unsure though

    I have darker colour wheels on mine ie not the usual hyper silver, and i think they make the car. However mine is a darker colour than yours, but it should give a nice contrast in antracite

    One advantage to having stock black paint finish wheels is if you scuff them you can repair them yourself.:p

    Antharcite wins boys, chrome would be good, but my missus drives the car on daily basis, so it need to be something I can repair myself.

    I have thought many times if I was to refurb mine (which they are due to be...) I should go anthracite... but to be honest, when my car is clean, the sun catches the paint/alloys/alloy wing mirrors, the car just blings HARD! I will be sticking with the standard silver colour for sure.

    I've had three sets of wheels done lately; one set in anthracite, one set in satin black, and the other in sparkle silver.

    Anthracite CH's look the nuts, but so do the sparkle silver RS4s. And the Black MTMs look feckin ace. Whichever way you go, you'll be chuffed.

    UPDATE!!!
    the wheels have now been painted, the chosen colour was Hyundia grey, mixed with standard black, then a touch of subaru Black(STI).
    (complete one off mix)

    they look amazing I'll post pictures soon, the shading in the paint when the face angle changes is stunning!!! they are getting waxed this week then tyres fitted and put on the car next thursday before the car goes to modified nationals!!!
