    I dont usually play around with the styling of my cars but my wheels are slightly kerbed and so are off to be powder coated early next week.

    I have 18 inch RS4's on a liquid blue A3, lowered approx 35mm all round

    They are currently the plain silver but am thinking anthracite or similar dark shade of grey will work quite well against the cars colour?

    Any suggestions, experience, ideas? :happy:

    This is liquid blue btw:

    Anthracite or smoked chrome. I just picked up my 19" rs4s yesterday for my liquid blue a3, going to have them powder coated in anthracite in the next few weeks!

    a member on here has done his wheels cream. i think that would look nice, but smoked chrome wouldn't be a bad way to go either. not too dark tho

    Cheers for all the suggestions.

    Cream would look good - I remember another member having white badges on a liquid blue A3, the colours work well together but its a bit 'stand out' for me im just looking for something more subtle.

    And S3RYE - where can I find pics of the 'satin grey', or the username of Luke that has them?
