i dont think green wheels would sell that great as youd have to find someone with the same colour car or someone whose willing to repaint them what about just a simple repaint in grey anthracite colour obv its been done alot but maybe use like a audi nimbus grey or summat

Yeah I could go for that gunmetally grey?
Yeah I am sceptical about green the likey chances of finding someone with my green is slim lol as there was only 25 made.
I might go for a grey then think that will look sound with a dark green car?
What about brown? lol a nice 70's porka brown?
Or whitey cream? Shocked

I think not... if it were me, then I'd spend time cleaning the wheels and sealing them ready for winter..

I'll be running the splits over the winter, just using sealant wax and regular cleaning to keep them mint..

Well what i was thinking of doing is gettin em shot blasted 1500 em depending on how they come out and then just lacquer em bobs your uncle?
When i wasn't at uni i used to run my summer wheels all year round but now im at uni i live in a rented house and have no access to outside taps ect ect so i have to pay £5 everytime i want my car washed and then i have to polish them in the freezin cold sack that!

get sum steels for winter then mate i would and lets be honest you can let steels go to rat S**t and then chuck em away next year or get sum g60 steels they are dead easy to clean and you can still get em from vw, and you wont have to worry bout your alloys getting kerbed or robbed
