    Default Wheel refurb, what colour??

    Going to get my wheels refurbed after xmas, they are pre facelift SRi wheels, was thinking of having them done to match the car, Black SRi, what colour do you guys think i should go for? I was thinking of some shade of black, would make the yellow calipers stand out, ideas welcome with pics if anyone else has done something similar!

    Dark, gun metal style grey, but probably won't match a black car.

    Black wheels on a black car wouldn't be the best imho - the wheels just wouldn't stand out :-(

    White?

    Scratch the white idea - a quick google search for "white wheels black car" gives some rather poor, charvery style results.

    Several designers were paid lots of money to come up with the ideal wheels for a particular car - that's why I love standard wheels.
