I've scratched my polished rim and it's got me thinking would the car look better with the alloys the same colour. I was just thinking of getting the whole thing done in the same grey?

Any opinions welcome. I don't want black alloys.

Full grey would definitely make the wheels look bigger as you lose the silver lip.

One colour wheel, and probably an at least slightly lighter colour would get my vote too.


White might be a bit extreme though...

Much as I like the “diamond polished” rim part of most wheels, even without kerbing (not curbing…lol) the things, the polished part always becomes the weak part due to both internal and external corrosion. Fully painted delays them both I am assured, but kerb rash is curable….park and WALK to the pavement…!

I’m intrigued to see what route you go down with this as I’m having the same dilemma with myself at the moment.

Having recently had my dracos refurbished, I decided to change the colour but keep the diamond cut lip.

these are mine recently colour changed with the diamond lip. I went with jaguar cashmere gold which is mainly silver with a little gold which shines through in the sun

Maybe not everyone’s taste, but I like them.

Sailun are the choice of non main dealer garages up and down the land to: (i) hide suspension problems evident through previous tyre wear, for just long enough before the customer realises/next MOT; and/or (ii) where a prospective customer points out that the tyres on the car they want to buy are a bit low, they negotiate new tyres as part of the deal - and the dealer agrees quickly enough.

Fullrun are another such favourite.
