    My wheels are needing the dished lips polished again as they are pitted with stone chips,
    While i get them done should i change the colour of the spokes from plain black to a nice silver
    or maybe graphite ?
    Here is a 2 second chop to show the original black and also what it could look like.

    I think they look pretty slick in black already, just get those rims polished up nicely and they should be looking mint!

    Both look good to be honest, silver will always have mass appeal but personally any colour IMO would be fine. Do what you want to do

    Either look good to be honest, but I really like how they are at the moment, the black with the polished rim.

    What i think i might do is when i (possibly) get the car resprayed i might get the spokes changed from
    plain black to cosmos black the same as my cars bodywork, and get the rims polished all shiny and nice again.

    in my opinion looks a bit chav to me but thats because all the chavs in there black corsas have that type of wheel near me :P

    they look good but i think silver rims stand out more and become more visually interesting and stand out as opposed to black.

    but obviously this is your motor and they do look good as they are especially once they have been cleaned up
