My gloss black wheels need a refurb (have done since I collected the car) and thinking having them done silver or grey/anthracite, rather than the standard black.

Would anyone be kind enough to photoshop this photo with silver or grey/anthracite to help me make up my mind?

IMHO (genuinely), you’ve obviously got a grey car with ‘black pack’. Not only are the black wheels an integral part of the ‘black pack’ but I reckon that silver (and especially grey/anthracite) wheels would be lost in the grey. Keep ‘em black.

A forged aluminum wheel can lose much of it's fatigue strength at the temps that some powder coaters use..

There are low temp powders.

A friend went out to his car a few weeks ago, and found three wheels had suddenly developed massive cracks. He had them powder coated 5 years ago. He didn't believe that powder coating could cause an issue.  He does now!

I think you’re right. I like the pictures above with the diamond cut and silver, but given I have the black bodywork the black wheels do help pull it all together.
