So I have the 17" Resolfen alloys and I want to change the colour, I originally thought white but then I realised how tacky it would look thanks to some help from the forum!! I have done a Photoshop of them black, let me know what you think...i will be getting them powder coated not sprayed.

Reckon gunmetal or anthracite would look better personally.

Having had a C4 with White Alloys I must say I don't think I'd have another...!

Looks alright in Black although as wozza says give the gunmental a whirl through photoshop.

Black wheels IMO suit the Black cars. Darth Vader-esque...

Away to get my resolfens reconditioned and was wondering how they'd look a different colour. I think gunmetal looks really good on resolfens (my car is black btw)
Which is darker anthracite or gunmetal. My new wheels are gunmetal and look pretty dark IMO

The "caked in brake dust" look!

In all seriousness though, I was sorely tempted to go for that colour when I was searching for my new rims. I always thought the Resolfens looked great even when they were coated in a layer of brake dust.

Haha I will go to the painter and ask for the "covered in brake dust" and see what he says!

If I was doing any more than the 5k miles p.a. I'd agree...they are on the cusp of being annoying at anything less!
