I was thinking of getting the 17" wheels on my GTV aero refurbished.

As they're in for refurbishing I was wondering how they would look in a slightly darker colour than the std silver. I wouldn't go much darker - but just a bit. I thought it might look pretty good with the dark Vela blue bodywork.

Maybe the smoked chrome on this page... http://www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk/File/wheel-finishes.php

What are peoples thoughts on slightly-darker-than-normal alloys or does anyone have any pics?

Cheers

Thanks EauRouge - looks great :inlove:

Yes, I know a place that can do them for £100 (inc vat) per set and I've used them before so I know they're ok.

I've also done wheels myself in the past just using lots of wet and dry and spray cans. Or I know of a very good spray shop were I could take the wheels ready-prepped and they could do any colour I like. I'd just need the paint code. They did these on my Coupe a few years back... http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y165/jamesperks/DSCF3805.jpg

Hmmmmm. Decisions...

Speak of the devil. :) Excellent time to pop up there mate. I was thinking i didnt think it was quite as dark as 'vela' but couldnt remember properly. I do like them dark wheels on yours, suit it nicely.
Top banana on getting your V6 back this weekend then :cool::thumbs:
