I have a black Astra H (2007) with silver alloys.

I was considering buying black alloys for it, until I realise I'd be spending £400+ on them.

I do want black alloys but not that bad.

What about a DIY jobby? Is it worth it? Do they end up looking rubbish?

I would only bother if they looked decent.

Just get them refurbished. £150 and they'll be good as new. Maybe even less if you find the right place

You can get them powder coated for a lot less than 400 as Tony says 150 -200 is about right

But why go black you lose all the shape of the wheel and to my they just look like black blobs
