Gun metal... I think it will set the car off better in my opinion...
white would get dirty..quickly...

Hi Bob,

Quote UK dave from this thread: http://www.subaru-impreza.org/bbs/sh...ad.php?t=10572


( I generally just polish mine every other month with normal car polish and they seem to be ok, wash em well weekly though.)


I do the same as Dave & my wheels look good as new
