    I seem to have bought 2 sets of 19's in the last month. On top of the set of 19" CH's i already own. (Ignoring the 2 sets of s3 18's.......)

    So my dilemma is I have an ibis white s3 lowered on h&r and need to decide what to with the wheels i have.

    Set 1 - BBS CH in black.
    Set 2 - MTM Bimoto currently diamond polished but in need of a refurb
    Set 3 - Audi speed line splits in black with silver bolts

    So given the car colour and the wheels I have, can anyone help me with ideas and pictures of what to do with what I have!? Happy to refurb any/all.

    So pictures and ideas please!!

    No Pictures but why not do the MTM's in the Audi titan matt like the black editions?

    That would look nice up against your Ibis car.

    Another vote for the mtm's. maybe gloss black fronts will give a nice contrast.

    Get the MTMs done in titanium, or anthracite... something dark but not black. Check out Paullie's wheels on her yellow S3, they'd go well against the white.

    Thanks mate - dont think Diamond cut on ibis white is a great look - I offered them up at the weekend and really dont like it.

    I'm also interested as the master of all wheel whores what you would do with the 19" splits that are currently gloss black? Was thinking splitting them down and leaving the centre black and the rims in silver. Thoughts?

    or something like this...[​IMG]

    tnx mate, but sorting other things at the moment, probably shipping over here would cost more than the wheels alone...

    They are genuine Audi 19" Speedline splits. I am not keen on them in black either to be honest! I like the gunmetal centres a lot but then i end up with anthracite MTM, gunmetal speedlines and black CH's...... I wanted to be a bit different with each set!

    Or maybe i should just choose a set to sell.......

    I had black centres on mine, but originally wanted N8's gunmetals ones (a big part of me getting the Speedlines). The black didn't really do the wheels justice, but I think they worked better against a black car too.

    Maybe its just me, but i think the dark wheels on a light car has been overdone now and from a distance you may as well have steels on as you cant really see the detail of the wheel or anything !

    I like the idea of being able to see the wheel you have decided on, perhaps thats just me being old fashioned ! Plus i have been thinking James those MTM's were probably on my car and then sold on and then you bought them lol so ideally they should do a full circle and come back to me :) Afterall i already have the MTM badge and remap to match lol !

    Sell a set yes. A satin grey against white would be nice or satin black.

    'Titanium' centre of OEM rotors, but on Speedlines = the perfect wheel, in my book (my plan was to get mine redone that way around this time if I hadn't sold the car).

    I just love them... pain in the ar53 to keep clean, and with stretched tyres that shiny rim is always a worry, but they look so good!
