I have decided on the tyres i am going to get but still not fully decided of the colour for the refurb :? :? :? i have got 107s so i want to see as many pics as you guys with 107s can show me. I have a titanium silver roady and i dont want silver wheels, black doesn't suit a 107 i dont think so i want a colour that makes the wheels on a silver zed look fing smart :thumbsup:

i need to make up my mind for the first week in August, i want her looking proper smart for zedfest. :thumbsup:

Front one looks best imo.
Never been a fan of painting standard wheels different colours, each to his own of course.

Just had these 224s done with black powdercoat base then wet painted over with silver / lacquer to give a multi coloured finish . I think on a silver car would look a treat & a bit different ?? Though not ideal for Lord oxygen :P

They look fabulous :thumbsup: That's the finish I always wanted when I ran the 224's but no refinisher could promise it
