    They look a bit darker than anthracite but, do suit the cars colour.

    Is 'Anthracite' just the name of a colour?

    Basically,yes. Anthracite is a carbon based mineral which is obviously a greyish black colour. Your best bet would be to get a test piece of metal and some sample cans/pens from Halfords and see which shade you like. Worst thing you could do is go for a colour and then realise you dont like it!

    Anthracite wheels do look nice.

    just remind me too much of a clio 182 for me to like them enough to have them.

    Looks good. Average price for refurb is £40 per wheel which is good IMO. On my old car I had the wheels done Gun Metal Grey and they looked the business- Very similar to anthracite but it was a bit lighter- I can put some pics up if you wana see the colour!
