Brera Wheels

Hi guys

Ive just purchased a red Brera which is completely stock, every wheel has been curbed quite badly and it spoils the look so im thinking about getting them refurbed and perhaps painted to a darker colour or buying used/new on e-bay.

Can any of you guys with red cars post up pics of your car with your wheels if they are not stock so i can look at yours to see which direction im going to take

ta

Ian

Only problem with dark or coloured wheels is that if you do curb them it stands out much more obviously than a light colour.

Brera 2.2 JTS

Had my silver 18" wheels refurbed by Autolusso a few months back. Very happy with the result. I think it was around 300 or so for all four. I've got Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres fitted which have a lip to protect the wheel from curbing. Well worth having.

oh, the question was for pictures of custom colour dark wheels, not necessarily on red brera, so pasted what I had from time of my research.
anyway, suggestion from my first post applies, google is full of images of any colour alfa with all kind of alloys. when I did research for my grey titanium, I was able to see all possible options, any standard and plenty of non-standard alloys in any colour.

When I had my 19" Prodrive wheels refurbed I chose a slightly lighter dark colour, darker than silver but not so dark.

Still some good pics with your post epsonix, a worthwhile contribution even if not a red car.
They may well help other owners

I like the idea of dropping the colour down from silver, ive got the 7 circle wheels, i did see some nice pics of the 7 circle wheel in their original silver look but not sure if this suits the car.
