People's opinions please.

I have a silver 335i with what I believe are the 19" mv4 wheels.

And have been contemplating having the wheels refurbed as there is laquer peel and the odd kerbing.

Question is what colour??

Or do I just get a set of 313 reps?

Any one got any pics off an m sport on 313's or different coloured mv4's?

Thanks.

Not a great pic but gives you an idea of the 313's

Ive seen MV4s in different colours and dont think anything but silver works on them. The 313s will look nice!

I have always heard owners of 313 moaning about them that they are hard to maintain and keep them kerb free. And its make its hard to get refurb'd when they are diamond cut. As any tyre shop can easily damage them.

In fact, I have seen some of them seriously thinking of moving on to different wheels.

MV4 in grey powder coat or in ferric Grey colour look awesome on silver cars if you are after aggressive look.



Or just keep them standard silver if you are after classic image.



HTH.

I've got OEM 313s and it's a very much love/hate relationship. Love them on the car but every pot whole you go over you think your going to damage them. Multi story car parks with the high curbs are a nightmare. I have thought about moving away from them but don't know what. The problem is that most new BMW wheels these days will be diamond cut anyway!
