    Default Wheels... do I or Dont I??

    Well basically my wheels were refurbed by the previous owner and it was a rubbish job, the Lacquer has started peeling on all the wheels and it has also turned yellow so they are in desperate need of a refurb. i have constantly been thinking of staying with the OEM look of silver but i played around in photoshop and thought it doesnt look right with bright silver alloys so i darkened them....

    what do people think of this? do i get it done or just stick with silver?

    Hmm, I like them in Pics, but not sure in "real life".

    I had a silver ZT, and I got those wheels refurb'd slighly darker, although it was a top job, after a short while I wished I kept'd them std silver.
