    Defo polish the lip (or are you getting them chrome powdercoated?).

    Either go mental (I have thoughts about bright yellow!) or silver/anthracite centres imo

    not that bad mate just needs some tlc just water got under the lacquer and one needs fixed due to a crack.
    should look nice when done.

    You have other wheels for winter don't you? Polished are not that difficult to look after, I wash mine once a week and autosul and wheel sealant them every couple of months. Plished looks so much better than painted/powdercoated imo.

    I think polished lip with gunmetal spokes would look the best Or is that too subtle?

    black centres and polished lips would probably be the best allrounder,but if your going extreme pink centres or lime green with polished lips
