Which Way to go?

Post by ASBug on Fri Jan 27, 2012 4:04 pm

OK,
When I got the Passat from Gary It came with 3 BBS CH-028 Audi 18X8 wheels.
I have finally located another (4 months of heavy looking). The wheels I got from Gary are powdercoated black and the other is OEM Audi Reflex Silver. I am planning on having them all powder coated the same color (approx. $350). I loved the Black ones untill I saw the Reflex silver. With my Beige / Tan color (Savannah Beige) I am not so sure about any colors and what would look good. If I go with black, I am going to finish blacking out the rest of the trim as well.
Just wanted some opinions, like I said - I liked the black all right and I like the silver pretty good as well, but just wanted some other's opinions / ideas, before I go ahead and powder coat these.

(As it is now)


Let me know what you guys think.

i'm guessing having them powdercoated the same color of the car is out of the question then? why not just paint them?

I had actually been thinking a darker brown with a polished lip as well.
I think that with all the black trim it needs to be either silver to match the chrome pieces, or???
There is a photo on the vortex of the metalic rootbeer colored ones, but I cannot find them now.
I'm thinking, thanks for the ideas so far. Keep 'em comming.

I like the silver better than the black.....the black is just too bland.....wheels make a car....polished would look good probably the brown too

Washed the car today, it lightened up 2 shades w/o all the road grime on it... I hate all this rain. Any way thanks to the visual aid from tron, I amn probably going to go with a metalic rootbeer color. The links to the Vortex is the same color as what I saw, but a different wheel.
Silver < Rootbeer for now.
@Don - the sticker is tough stuff. I peeled it off the back window and put it there. When the weather warms up I am going to get one for kermit. I have to change out the windows and seals first.
