Cosmic Grey EP3 - what wheel colour?

I'm going to refurbish my alloys, they are rashed around the rim on all wheels (not by me), been considering changing the colour, it's oem silver at the moment. So, do I keep the same or change?

Tough call, your bodywork is so close to the alloys and matches really well as is. So maybe just go a shade or two darker on the alloys?

Ah is it a poll? - Tapatalk doesn't show them on a phone...

Yeah, I managed to get a poll set up. It's strange as you post the thread and then it goes into the poll set up.
Aha, I don't use Tapatalk but the poll option appears on my phone via browser.

I quite like the gunmetal option, but also like the idea of something different. Gold actually looks really good on the CG.

Cosmic Grey is a lovely neutral colour - you'll get away with any of the suggestions in the poll pal. Nothing outlandish like green or orange needed!

I voted gunmetal, can you get the same / similar grey that is used on the oem dark wheels of the UKDM red dc2?

Pretty sure it is going to be silver or gunmetal. Shadow chrome would be interesting

Ep3 wheels are a bit trickier as they have the narrow gap in the spokes, leaning towards gunmetal as it will be a slight change and I've seen a CG EP3 with them and it looks great. I was a bit concerned about the wheels and bodywork being grey but it works.

90% sure I'm going for gunmetal. If there is a silver or grey paint that anyone knows of which has a blue tinge or fleck to it, can you please tell me? Ta.
