2010 Evora forged alloy wheel colour

Recommended Posts

Much to my annoyance I have kerbed one of the rear wheels on my Evora.  Its a 2010 car with the forged alloys finished in Anthracite.

I have been to Th e Wheel Specialist in Fareham (who I have heard good things about), but their standard Anthracite/Charcoal colour is quite a bit different.  They have asked me for a colour reference if possible.

So..does anyone know what the actual colour these wheels were painted, I am worried about a getting a good match.  If anyone has any experience of repair to these colour wheels I would also be interested to hear, along with any other local to me (South Hampshire) recommendations for repairers.

Yeah that would be the one!  Thanks Bibs.  I can't believe they even went to the same place as me.

I did a search but didn't find this one.

Be aware the Stealth Grey of the Cast Wheel is different to the Anthracite of the Forged Wheel. You may struggle to get a decent match, so it might be wise to do both front and rear at the same time. Also, it might be prudent to verify if the finish is original in the first place.

I contacted Rimstock and they couldn’t give me a code for my LE forged wheels.  They said that the finished colour was the result of a number of layers that have been heat treated and couldn’t give a specific code.

I think you’d have to get a colour specially made to match.

Thanks, and that's what is bugging me and probably the main reason I am so annoyed I kerbed it.  I was told yesterday they would prefer to do both wheels on one side to avoid any off colour between front and back.

Will see how it goes.  Other option is to do them all gloss black (it really will be like a sports racer then!).

If you go gloss black, be interested to know price / quality as I’ve been thinking about that for mine (currently stealth grey cast alloys).  I’m also very close to Fareham so interested in service / standard of work as well!
