  1. I've stuck with gloss black and will continue to do so.....

    But.....a colour that always appeals and works well as its slightly darker is called "Shadow Chrome". BMW used it on some M cars a few years ago and I think it's a good in between for silver or black....

    Worth a Google. It looks incredibly when done properly and in real life. Almost like a silver grey coming through black....

    I’ve never been a big fan of black wheels (in general) as you lose that clean visual separation from the tyres. I have to admit they do look very “coherent” on the Sports Racer though - when they are clean reflections from the glossy black finish are strong enough that they “work” visually.

    They are less convincing with a layer of dirt on them though.... 🤔

    I don’t think I am too far away from a wheel refurb. I am hugely tempted to veer away from the oem gloss black. Thinking anthracite/gunmetal - something that is still dark but - crucially - not black.

    I won’t revert to silver, but a bit brighter might work - bronze does appeal.

    Any Sports Racer owners been down a similar route and willing to show photos?

    thanks in advance 😁👍


    Picture of my old M5 with Shadow Chrome wheels. Can't find the close ups on my phone.

    😂 That's a good question, never tried this kind of combo. 

    I don't know what's inside an MO spec Pirelli. It depends of the car it was developed for and was made to match with a specific rear to fulfill a specification of dry Handling, wet Handling, RR,... 

    It's a proper Lottery there 

    Nice one! I'll keep you posted about how many hairy moments I have this summer!

    1.8 front & 2.0 is what I use on PSS.

    However, the OEM TPMS might not be too happy with those values (and can’t be adjusted, BTW). 

    Blimey that's low!!!

    Can I ask why that low? Does it handle better or is it more about comfort?


    @rallyesax I've now got MO P Zeros on the front and MO PS4S's on the rear......Am I going to end up in a hedge?
