    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Default Wheel centres

    I am just in the process of having my wheels refurbed. I picked up the two I have had done so far (silver over black) which look great, with a bit of luck they should be fitted this weekend, my problem is that I don't think the wheel centres are going to match.

    I was wondering if anyone has had this problem before and looking for suggestions on what to do. Has anyone taken the giffins off and painted them and then replaced the griffins? I was wondering if they might look goo painted black as a contrast with the nice shiny chrome griffins in or whether the difference is likely to be not as noticeable as I think it might be?

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    I think black painted centers would look OK...have any pics of the wheels....might be easier to have an idea of the looks on them...

    here you go, being silver over black they look a bit darker than the original, pretty much the effect I originally wanted when I was thinking of Anthracite. The centres dont actually look to be a true match to the original anyway!

    I have to say now that they are fitted the original centres dont look too bad, my mate who fitted the tyres was a bit concerned about the 'mother hen' who was fussing about scratching the rims though!
