    I dont want to vote for any of them. Can I just say Silver. If you do them dark they'll disappear. But that's just my opinion. But I wouldn't get them re-cut, from what I can see it doesn't last long.



    Here's a link to what I looked at to get an idea, excuse my sh!te photoshop efforts! But ultimately it's what you want not what we think!

          Keep them looking original unless you really, really hate them. My opinion of course.

            If you can afford it, then re-cut, cant beat it, especially if thats how the wheels started out.

              Remember..... getting them recut....you only get around a 6 - 12 month guarantee with them.

              They then start showing the dreaded "white worm".

                This is a bit like asking us for the next colour scheme in your buduir.
                The decision in the end is yours.

                  Mmmm.
                  Re-cut is the forerunner at the mo'.
                  I'm just not stuck on Silver/black with the car being Silver.Even the ones that aren't scuffed look 'yellowish' close up.I need to have someone to look at them as the deep scuff on the rear might be too deep to re-cut anyway.
                  I'm edging between re-cut and gloss anthracite........

                    as Drew said - silver, experience has shown me diamond cut refurbs don't last, don't like black wheels either. Up to you though.

                      Black will suit your car because it's light silver. I've voted gloss black because the shine catches the light. Photos never do black wheels justice but in the flesh they can look lovely. I know you wont go for black though because the sheep have started bleeting.

                      Don't waste your money on getting them recut. They will only worm again.

                        My Wife's Adam is Red with 17" Gloss Black wheels and TBH I think it looks good.
                        Having had a chat with a local Wheel refurbisher the gouge in the rear might be too deep for a re-cut anyway

                            Wouldn't they just TIG some aluminium into the gouge and re-cut the weld back after powdercoating? Would take 10 minutes to fill.

                            Personally would go original or silver, but I've never really liked wheels being all dark coloured.

                              That's a possibility I suppose but I'll discuss all the options before hand.
