I've got the standard silver wheels and have got quotes from loads of places, I think I'm going to go with The Wheel Specialist as their work looks solid for £350.

Anyway, I want to get them black, but I can't figure out what black is used in these pictures, is it matte?



These are their finishes, left is matte, right is satin.


He seems to think it is matte, but it looks too shiny to be matte.

What's everyone's thoughts on stock wheel colours?

Yeah that's what I always wanted, but saw these and think they're too shiny.

I'm not a fan of the matte though, so I think it might have to be satin...
dont forget - they will get dirty with dust and will turn matt anyways :mhihi:

Chrome/Black would look good on a blue X. The Wheel Specialist did a set of 19" Enkei wheels for me in C/B. Something different from the normal black. A nice contrast with the colours and d'not show the dirt so prominently as black only.

The pic was just for reference, I've actually got a red one.
The Wheel Specialists certainly have a good rep. Looking forward to this, it will drastically change the look of my car! :)

Unfortunately now I really need the Calipers doing, it's a lot more obvious now! The wheels have completely changed the look of the car! TWS did a great job
