Hey troops had the Type R a couple weeks now, she was away getting the windows done today, and when I got her back fitted new HID bulbs, and LED sidelights, (thanks to the legend that is Mr JP)
Gave her a quick clean and took her for a wee photo or two.
come next weekend, the car will be sporting a different colour of wheels, which colour I am not 100% sure, your suggestions are welcome.

anyway here she is.












All comments welcome, and ideas on wheel colour would be good aswell.

Cheers

+1 and IMO I hate black wheels looks naff :worms: but loads will disagree
I am not a fan of black either as I think they look like steelies unless they have a coloured lip but dont think the oem wheels would suit a coloured lip.
Like anthracites and gunmetals
just want the car to look a little different from the other type rs that you see driving about hence the different wheel colour.

I'm on the fence with them think I would like them one day then not be to fussed the next, was thinkin more of the bronze that the type r is available in, but then they might just look black :facepalm:

Liking them aswell, do you know a paint code for that colour by any chance?
or do you just know its dark gun metal?
Mine is custom buddy ? I have a friend who is a powder coater & he done them mixed a colour for me I have I think the only two sets that he has done ? As they have a different dark flakes in & they are more of a mat than full gloss ? that's why I got custom just to be different good luck with your choice, I have another picture with my other set I will post it to show you.

Cheers mate, I am only changing the the colour of the oem wheels. just to make it stand out a little.

The spot is only 5mins away from my house, is a pretty good place if you get the light right.
not bad for crappy iphone pics. :p

Ah cool in that case id leave them silver, reason being with the handles and petrol cap being silver the wheels just go.

Iphones for the win :)
