Hey guys.

Got the Focus booked in for an alloy wheel refurbishment in 2 weeks time. Got the car in February and it was in mint condition apart from the alloys which were scraped and bashed, and looked like they had suffered some sort of water ingress in behind the lacquer or something...

Anyway, I've been given a choice of 4 colours for the refurbed wheels. Initially I was just going to stick with silver and get them back to basic, but thought I might just be adventurous about it...

The choices are:

Gloss black: http://www.thewheels...gloss-black.jpg
Gloss white: http://www.thewheels...gloss-white.jpg
High power silver: http://www.thewheels...ower-silver.jpg
Gun metal: http://www.thewheels...ws-gunmetal.jpg

At the moment I'm leaning between silver and black... but what do you guys think?

The car is Panther Black btw and looks like this: (the alloy in this pic is actually the best of the 4 and had just been washed, so doesn't look too bad... but trust me, the others are in some mess and really need refurbed!!!)
