    So basically because of the poor winter weather and all the salt on the roads I need to refurb my alloys in a new colour! I started photo-shopping them to grey and found it actually didn't look horrible in other colours!

    This is where you guys come in! What colour should they be?

    They're currently white and I was thinking anthracite (Grey)? Here are a few guidance pictures!

    Note that I couldn't do realistic rendering of gold, black or silver so they're not here but they're still on the poll! Also note that the shades could vary massvely, e.g. the green doesn't even look green!

    Currently (White):


    Anthracite (Grey):


    Blue:


    Cyan:


    Green:


    Yellow:


    Orange:


    Red:


    Purple:


    Pink:


    Thanks for filtering through this!

    I vote grey, but not too grey.

    Go for the OEM+ look, it will look really good then IMO

    I would go for the purple one's for the type of car, I think that the purple one's would look the better out of them all and not many cars have purple rims etc. A black and purple car looks good

    I like black with black.

    Unless you're going for a full accented scheme, colours don't really work and grey/anthracite just looks like dirt next to clean black paint imo.

    It might just be the perspective but it looks like you could do with some bigger wheels. They look a little lost, especially at the rear.

    Thanks, I do have a set of 16s that I could refurb and then put on but I'll need a new set of tyres for these to fit, but your point is one that has crossed my mind many times before! This is currently my winter set.

    Black on black rarely works in my opinion, especially on standard cars.

    I voted OEM silver, however chrome gold could work in a sort of so-bad-its-good kind of way.

    I quite like the purple and the green. I don't like the anthracite at all.

    The grey ones look nice, the others look a bit tatty...

    I think the white ones you have look nice (can't vote on the poll, on a phone:P)

    I'm scared that there are so many people that are tasteless enough to choose something else than white or grey.

    I wouldn't have it on my own car, but the OP seems open to a bright colour so I said which I preferred.

    If you're going with a lairy colour, I'd change the colour of the badge in the grille to match ?
