    Mine wheels aren't kerbed they just seem to look pretty dull. Looking at brightening them up again I have come up with 3 ideas.

    Gloss black again,
    Gloss white, maybe to much white on an ibis?
    or just go crazy and get the wheels wrapped with a stickerbomb vinyl to be completely dif. If i dont like it I can always rip it off.

    Lmao Im not a fan of satin or matte. It has to be gloss. I need a shiny finish.

    I know theres gonna be a lot of hate for the sticker bomb but I just thought for a laugh why not?

    Each to their own and all that :)

    Don;t think stickerbombing will work on a white car though.

    Cheers, worth a thought I loved my gloss finish but its just faded really badly must have driven through something as I cant seem to clean them up, think I might vinyl them first just for a complete change and just to be random. I think slammed and bombed will look pretty cool but I may be wrong. only one way to find out!

    What I do want to see is white s-line alloys on a white car to see what that looks like too I can only think of Ians for white wheels white car but the chrome breaks it up abit

    What wheels do you have?
    Not very sharp pics(phone) but I had mine done in Black Chrome. The chrome ontop of the black really sparkles. I think it would work on most wheels.

    As soon as my wheels sell I will buy some lows. And more than likely be coming to you for said lows.

    Buy them have a spare set lol cheers for the pic they have blacked the mirrors and roof though mine are White I'm worried with White wheels White car it'll look like a blob of tipex

    Not a fan I'm afraid
