    Default Thoughts on these rims in silver

    After getting my old rims back from fellow member,I need to get them refurbed ,they are 18" zitos and when I bought them originally they were gunmetal grey with silver centres and silver edge and looked awesome on my signum,but they have been painted matt black and I don't know what they will look like on my car,I've sprayed one silver to see if it would look ok but I'm not convinced enough to get them refurbed plain silver,I'm leaning towards the original set up,anyhow I've enclosed a pic of one on the car to gauge opinions,maybe a kind photoshopped could alter the colour to graphite with silver rim and edge thanks,all comments as ever gratefully accepted

    I like them, would keep them all one colour like as there doesn't appear to be a distinct lip in the pic to seperate the colours... Although if there is you could try metal polish the lips if your refurbing them, a drill kit is about a tenner on eBay

    Lol was waiting for the first suspension comment.not lowered mate but when I get the wheels sorted ill be dropping it at the same time and perhaps get new tyres with 45 profile as the 40s make the rims look smaller too

    Just widen them I have 225 40 18 and look smaller you and I need to put 235 40 18 tyres on that will make the tyres wider and look better

    Look ok silver but look better painted black! Well they did on my car ha..
    Really are nice wheels, so a pro refurb will bring them back to life regardless of colour ;-)
