Alfa Brera 2.2

Brera S & Goldy Looking Wheels

So, had to get the wheels re-furbed due to powder coat peeling off the Prodrives and alloy starting to rot...

Went for Gold, in line with the Classic Alfa colour scheme.

Personally, I love them, but I'm getting mixed reactions from friends and indeed strangers.

What do you think?

Not to my personal taste, but not bad. As you say, it fits with some historic Alfas.

I think the colour makes the wheels look smaller, and are they matt finished?

Love the shape of the brera, the progression of rear lights is sweet

You're a brave man Jemboe!
All you need now is a gold medallion to complete the look

I genuinely was only musing this today as I saw a black golf with gold Audi TT alloys on it and wondered what my 159 on prodrives would look like with with gold wheels instead of the silver.

As for yours ... I like it

Think I saw your car at NAD, at Chatsworth a couple of weeks ago so, if nothing else, they make it stand out.

If it wasn't you, then someone else shares your tastes.

Personally, I'm thinking of gloss black for my red Brera.
