I'm changing the colour of my white alloys, turning them black, but do I go for matt, gloss or satin? :nervous:

I'd be interested to see peoples black alloys, especially on a white R33, and if you do post up can you please say what finish the alloys are (gloss/matt/satin) :thumbsup:

Here is a picture of my car and alloys, the white must go, had enough of white alloys!!! :p

Thanks Mook, really hard to decide on satin with apparently so few of that finish in my style alloys?!! :(

Leave 'em alone. They look fine :chairshot
You need a white exhaust to fill what looks like a gaping black hole though ;)
Haha :D There's a Kakimoto GT1.OZ sitting in that hole, believe me :thumbsup:
I've had nearly 2 years of white alloys, sick of cleaning them now, black it is, the new white :D

Thanks for the input Dave. I'm not really a fan of gunmetal against white, I personally find it all too washed out looking, but I will photoshop it onto my car to have a look all the same :)

Gloss black Cliff - the extra slip resistance of the paint finish will help you find 0.02 secs ;)

Must admit the car looks great as is, but white & black do go well also - do a few photoshops & then make your mind up
