Repainting Activa Wheels colour ??

Post by Stewart(oily) » 08 Jul 2013, 11:07

I am in the process of fitting my Activa wheels to my recently acquired Xantia HDI, the car is rather shiny in Wicked red and I was wondering what colour the collective might think would suit the car best?
I find myself drawn towards Satin black or Gunmetal.
opinions please :)

i'd go for a Titanium Silver as its a little darker but should set them off nice or a light original silver to look good against the bodywork :)

Gunmetal and Wicked Red is a good combination. Not black though...

Gunmetal was a stock colour for some Speedlines fitted to the darker coloured Pug 205GTis and they looked quite wonderful.

Hi

Stewart(oily)

So if you were to go for the gunmetal on the rims, and having blinged that part of the car would you go for a tint on the windows, in a matching gunmetal tint, and then lower it when you park up, to be down wiv de yoof, and chillax? :wink:

Not black, very few wheels look good in black and at a glance they can just look like steel wheels without covers. Some kind of graphite grey would be nice I think.
