Lovely mate, have you looked at anthracite as well I like that. If you want them done cheap got a mate that can do them? But it really depends on what you're after I'll put up a pic of mine

Sorry Arden on red looks awful

Anthracite as I hate black wheels on most cars as you lose the definition of the wheel

Well at the moment they are booked in to be powder coated mazerati grey, (that's what th(Y)ey told me it was anyways) but there is still time for it to be changed if need be.

:lol: they're on my black car not red! Yeah the Mrs had her pentas refurbished black and I'm not a huge fan, plus with the crap from the road and the brake dust they look brown really quick you have to constantly maintain them to keep that gloss shine

I'd go black, if the roof is going that way :)

Black all the way Rob, like Dawn says , it matches your roof, then you can possibly easily customise more trims in black;; ie tailgate trim , front frill , fog surrounds etc, but Graham has a point in easily becoming mucky, that's why people have silver wheels because generally they look tidy even though filthy.

ps Anthracite is superb, so too is BMW graphite silver.
