19 Prodrive alloy colour?

Hi all,
I have a red Brera currently with 17"s on it at the moment. However, in the near future I will be looking at upgrading them to the 19" prodrive alloys as I think they look great! Just can't decide on what colour to get🤔 stuck between silver and gun metal.. Just looking for some opinions?

That's a really nice finish. Is that the official ppg color?

looks really nice. i would love to own such rims, but never came across any sale advert in Poland(maube they were only available in UK?). i guess the paint is what ofen is called chrome shadow, so on black background layer, bit thinner silver chrome layer and then transparent layer?

For some reason, I always just notice 5 spoke appearance when the prodrives are painted silver, instead of 5 holes in gunmetal, but I've got old eyes.
White always look awesome with a red car, maybe if you find any prodrive wheels (probably looking at 1600+ cost with tyres....if they are available!!), then maybe spray them a pearlescent white?

Reason for the exorbitant price is that Rimstock only produce these to order in very limited batches.

The large silver 5-holes remind me of the 8C.
Always a good thing.

But grey wheels with Alfa Red bodywork also looks (surprisingly) good https://www.flickr.com/photos/michae...n/photostream/
