    Default What colour shall I get my wheels painted?

    Hi there everyone!
    Ive just joined this forum having just bought a Signum 2.2 Petrol in Saphire Black with full Irmscher body kit, de-badged grill, quad exhaust system and 18 inch Irmscher Sigma multi spoke alloys. I got the windows tinted by a local company last week so its beginnining to look the nuts!!!
    The alloys need refurbing and I will be taking them to a local wheel refurbishment business on the week beginning the 25th April. I cannot decide what colour to have them painted, silver, black, anthracite or shadow chrome?????
    Please can you give me your views to help me decide!
