    Default Can some kind person do a bit of Photoshop-ing for me please?

    As two of my wheels need refurbing due to dodging idiots I'm wondering about changing the colour of the wheels. If any Photoshop guru (like AJA ) could be kind enough to do a couple of mock ups for me I'd be very grateful. I've been debating anthracite (like Green Growler) or black, but I think black will look wrong.

    Cheers in advance!

    I reckon you should go for a "shadow chrome" finish.... like these:



    Most good wheel refurbishers should be able to do this finish.

    Cheers Alex Plain anthracite looks best right now.

    One more option, how about borrowing an idea from the old skool Escort boys and having a painted wheel with the rim & spoke faces diamond cut?
