I am thinking about having my alloys painted. Now I do have a weakness for black alloys but not sure what it would look like on my car with the CSL wheels. Or I might go down the very dark grey route, like the 18s on the M3.

What do you think?? Opinions would be appreciated guys. Thanks.

I don't think black would work be toomuch black if you get what I mean. A dark grey would look good though titanium or gunmetal...

I have been leaning towards dark grey. Whenever I see a black car with black wheels, I always think it looks good!

I think satin black wheels look sexy :spotman:

Not my cup of tea but those Johny Wheels would look fab on your car though just add the yellow callipers you have been harking on about :D

I keep seeing black wheels and think they look wicked on black cars, but you have to have the silver lip, or it looks like you don't have any wheels somehow! :? You have to be careful to not make it look like a chav mobile though, as all the boy racers are going for black, :shock: you might end up looking tacky in a couple of years! :chin: You could always paint it a different colour later! :D

Grey is cool too though. I think I'd go for the darker gunmetal rather than the lighter greys to be honest. :D :thumbs:

I think safe way to go is dark grey.

heres a pic of my car with black wheels, not to everyones taste but i get alot of positive comments, mine are 18inch, painting them would probably cost you around £300? why not put in a little more and get a new set, if you want details of where i got mine ill be happy to help.

as been said, black looks great, but you need to keep the silver rim, as badmash has done. It looks great!

Looks good. The thing is, I have only had these a couple of months and like the CSL style so dont want to change them. But I get what your saying ref the cost. Thanks mate.
