Hi mate, I got my alloys, same as yours, refurbed last year, a slightly shinnier finish than the original which was looking dull. At first I thought they looked too shiny, but actually that was only because they had looked so dull before. Go for a bright silver with a nice laquer finish! What colour is your GTA?, the bright silver looks really good with the red. Sorry, just seen yours is red too!

Get them refurbed like these, with the face diamond cut as someone on here did.
IMO might look better in a darker shade or black.

if you need a set to borrow while there being done i have my teledials here with tyres on
Cheers, Tony, that's good of you, but I have the GT 18s on at the mo, so I'll be ok. Want to use the teles for maybe track and winter use, but they really do need refurbishment :eek: Or I may just sell them after they're done, dunno yet.

Just out of interest has anyone refurbished their own GTA teledials? I know its not an expensive job to get done professionally compared to some other things but i am thinking about taking on the challenge........:confused: With regard to the colour i'm still unsure as to the colour (same decision as HackneyRed-Black GTA with teledials) I've got a light graphite/anthracite colour in mind similar to the limited edition brera and 159 alloys.
