    Anthracite was original and would hide some brake dust!
    That would be suicide!:tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    Maybe 2 red and 2 white...

    Cheers mate:thumb:
    They’re not too bad but would look a bit sore if I didn’t get them refurbed.
    Everyone loves wheel cleaning right??

    All about getting the wheels refurb! my enthusiasm of cleaning my own has declined since a few blemishes have appeared! Having a mint set of wheels is always something to be proud of!

    As for colour, white would mix things up! Brake dust can always be washed off!

    Update:
    Stud and nut conversion has turned up. 68mm rears and 75mm front.
    May attempt fitting it Sunday.
    Dropping my 2nd set of Silverstones into City Wheel Refurb in Birmingham tomorrow for powder coating. Theyre only charging me £100 to do all four!!
    Cheapest I could get locally was £210+vat. Hopefully they come out half decent.
    Bit of a trek but taking the family and visiting Warwick Castle. Everyone’s a winner:grinning:

    I’ve got both lengths but several people told me that the fronts don’t stick out the same as rears so need slightly longer?! I’m not certain either mate but all will be revealed soon enough
