Everybody still use SEM in Scumberland?

Previous owner of my car couldn't park for shit and kerbed the wheels to hell, so looking to get them repaired and not sure what colour to go....currently a VERY dark Bronze almost black as standard.... I was wondering how gunmetal would look?
The wheels in question are Rota Force's... those handy with photoshop feel free to have a bash with various colours.... the same white as the car did also cross my mind....

Put a side on photo of the car as it will be asier to photoshop

Gunmetal or Anthracite will look spot on

This is Rota Gunmetal

I had a set of rotas done there on my old car and went for the anthracite with a silver mist on. It looks really good on the car especially when the light hits it you get kind of a shade of chrome against the anthracite.

It's worth thinking about getting a combination like the silver mist etc gives a couple of styles in one. I've had a few set done from there and the quality is excellent. Shame I can't say the same about the finish on my OZ wheels I got new, will probably end up getting mine done in that again, depending on the finish warranty claim with them.

I think it might have been around £220-£240ish about a year ago. Not 100% sure though but its round about that.

Chris I just checked the bill from when you had them done and it was £288 including vat.

To be fair apart from one kerb mark (not guilty,it was like that when I bought it....honest! Very Happy) they are still spot on and clean up perfect!

Guess I was a bit off then. Might have been abit more as it wasnt just a basic colour thinking back it rings a bell that. Least someone's getting some use from the refurb, I sold it very shortly after then with all unkerbed so wasn't me.

Down to two colours after I realised how much work it is to keep the body white...let alone wheels too!

So dark bronze (lighter than now) or dark gunmetal grey.

Don't fancy paying £300 though, I know you get what you pay for etc but still...
