do i get silver again....or titanium (anthrecite really)

this is my old wheels done titanium and the porsche ones were another set i had before done silver. so its between these 2, i think im set for titanium but want others opinions too. remember my car is silver....i will included my photoshop to give an idea.

to me silver keeps the oem look, but titanium is different.

Current wheels



titanium





silver





photoshop with my mates (darker anthracite wheels) shouldnt be as dark as this



opinions much appreciated

its a toughy, i was in the same situation... i had the same as yours are at the moment. thought about anthrecite, but when i see it on a real clean shiny silver car driving past it kinda looks like there just covered in brake dust. i done mine black (tad boring but it works). but i would like a set of bbm rs's. id go for a different wheel if the pocket can affford em :lol:

Hoggy they are real nice man :eek: , not just a standard refurb though right?

The only problem with diamond cut wheels is the salt will soon get at the wheels even if they have been lacquered

Hi, Salt hasn't affected by 5 year old diamond cut/titanium VXR wheels, The Vaux lacquer is really thick tho.

Iv always been a fan of the anthracite wheels. That's what I'm going for on mine when I eventually get them refurbished. It will break the silver up on the car nicely, and if you keep it a bright grey (you can get it shiny haha!) they don't look Dirty at all and it actually helps hide the break dust build up!

I have to agree, they are lovely! Set of 8j on the front and 9j or 9.5j on the rear with the correct spacing! Looks awesome! Would need to be 18" at least though...don't know of 17" would look a bit lost in the TT arches!
