  • wheel colour ?

    ok have not decided if i want to do this yet, but as you know i have a black car, if you were to colour the wheels what colour do you think would suit it best if any, anthracite, gloss black etc etc,

    Keep them silver, think it looks the best by far with black.

    If you colour them gloss black the car would just look like one big lump of black (IMO), but it's your car so it's up to you

    Ask Mel to do a couple of photoshops to see what it looks like, (I'm sure she will help if you ask nicely :wink: ).

          It's fun to see what they will look like...

          PS purple and pink are good inside the engine aswell!!

                ive always liked the idea of having a black car with blacked out windows and back wheels. it would look really aggressive and deffo have people stare all the time.

                only thing is with back wheels is it looks all tyre.

                im a big fan of shadow chrome wheels and had a set done on my last car.

                  With how low profile the 19's are I don't think they would end up looking too fat

                        In my opinion on a black vxr satellite silver with a hint of silver flake/sparkle and a polish with 1 layer of srp and egp will look fantastic......lighter the better on noir!!!
                        Most wheel refurb companys will do this...

                        Its contrast your looking for...
