    With Audrey being a odd colour and me being **** with colours generally.

    I'm after some ideas on wheels colours.

    It currently looks like this

    I was thinking of going standard alloy colour cause I'm not sure a darker wheel would suit it.
    Anyone got any ideas or suggestions?

    I'm not going to colour code them.

    Whats wrong with the color thats there? I think it works well?

    If you want to change it, i'd keep it a darker grey/silver, perhaps BMW Sparkling Graphite, or Vauxhall Anthracite, both have a sort of browney hue to the silver, which will go nicely with the red paint.

    Alternatively a bronze might work?

    The colour they are looks good too with a slight blue hue to them.

    I would however be careful going too dark - as good as dark grey / gunmetal wheels often look off a car, once fitted they often just look dirty / a bit of a mess. IMHO, they either want to be silver, or properly gloss black.

    I think a more OEM silver would look nice and smart - OEM+.

    So im going to say OEM sivler, or black, with a black grill surround etc.

    It don't help that I'm **** at trying to picture colours and such in my head.
    I need it in front of me really.

    OEM silver is dull and boring. would like something a bit different.
    Black looks to much like steels with painted wheel trims on.


    Might just chrome them.
