    Default Refurbing Snowies

    Bought the car with snowies needing a refurb but having trouble deciding what colour to go for, I do like the stealth look with them in black but can't help thinking I might regret not getting them done silver?

    Someone posted yesterday about black wheels creating the illusion of them being smaller. I wouldn't like this effect, so I'd go for original silver or graphite/gunmetal. That's the plan for mine anyhoo.
