What colour for my wheels?
 
I've been wanting to paint my wheels for ages now, but can't decide what colour. I'm torn between black or an anthracite grey. A neighbour of mine has a black wrangler with grey wheels and it looks amazing.

I'm keeping my stock wheels for now, until I can get enough cash together for a new set. I really can't decide so please vote and help me out:thumbsup:

Black would look like this;

Couldn't get the full size image to work. This is Atomizers Jeep.

Not sure what grey would look like. Couldn't find any pics anywhere.

Hmmm, had this choice a few months ago with my 3000GT

It's a black car, and just about everything else on there is black... BUT i went with anthracite on the wheels and i think (and so do a lot of people) that that was the right choice!

Black on black does look good, but there is rather a lot of tyre with the standard rims, the wheel kinda disappears when its all black!

For mad-max style offroader = black

...but my choice would have to be anthracite again!

Mine will need doing (at some point) although I am looking at the SRT wheels for next summer ;)

I chose grey so there is a little contrast between the tire and the wheel itself. If you had black, Your rims would look smaller than stock. Just my .02

Anthracite grey with a polished lip like those Freedom Editiom wheels would show up nice on there

I like Chucks wheels also. Search around for pics of his rims.

I like the anthracite with the chrome lip. Think I may go for that. My wheels have a narrower lip but I have a polishing kit that could get a mirror shine.

One thing for sure is that I share your opinions on black being too much with the stock tyres, I couldn't agree more on that. Hopefully I'll be getting srt wheels next year and hopefully they'll be attached to a srt8:D
