Silver or black wheels.

My mates thinking of buying the new Seat Leon Cupra K1. This will be there first brand spanking new car and its big step for them. They are still undecided about the wheels, silver or black bearing in mind they are going for the white car, what do you think?

Silver, without a doubt. There is something "wrong" about black wheels.

Silver. The black wheels on a white car make it a little too chavvy.

Silver - the black one's look like your Halfords stick on plastic wheel trims fell of when you hit a kerb.

Re: Silver or black wheels.

Don't buy a white car.... 99.9% of cars look terrible in white. There's even a white R8 that parks up the hill from my work and it looks awful

Good point; and it seems that white is fast becoming the new silver. Problem is that white can look good on certain small sporty cars but as a general rule should be left to ambulances and fridges.

Having said that the Leon is borderline smallish car so white should be ok, but as for the wheels I'd say silver for the simple reason that black wheels just look awful.

As long as they're not those highly polished silver wheels, they look awful as well.

I'm quite hard to please, but at least you can't say I haven't thought about it on your friend's behalf.

Re: Silver or black wheels.

Not keen on white full stop, for the car or wheels. But I would go for Silver.

Black and white would make it look like a negative.

Hmm, yes, small sporty white car and chrome alloys. Does indeed look good I have to agree.

It's a Fiero isn't it? I saw one of those yesterday but it had been made to look like a Ferrari 360. Well, kind of. But not really.

Re: Silver or black wheels.

How about splitting the difference and going for dark silver?
