I personally don't like black wheels sorry but dark anthracite looks very tidy

Each to their own though mate

i think it depends on the colour of the car alot - it doesnt work for me on blue but on silver and esp white it can work

I had my 17" Speedline GT1's refurbished by www.wickedwheels.co.uk Totally striped to the bare and reworked again using powder coats etc. Anthracite finish. Well chuffed with them.
Will say that because it was a colour finish they wanted them in the workshop and not the mobil unit.

www.spitandpolish.co.uk worth a call. Not used em myself but only heard good things about them.

Black alloys

Black alloys look good as do anthracite on silver cars particularily - Have used spit and polish before - very good - did a set of 205GTI alloys for me - looked like new!!!
