You can get this shadow chrome i dont know a ref or anything
I really like it.
Last time I saw it was on a set of csl reps (alfugen) looks mint against a black car without the over the top of black on black.

Failing that bright blue?

I got mine done in titanium recently. The car is bright red so I like the contrast and since i'd went for the black edition grill the silver wheels didn't look right.

I think something like shadow chrome or hyper black would look good. Both would probably still be classed as a silver but are just a bit more individual and subtle.

Get a side on shot of your car for some photochop experiments, that's what I did.

Black with retained silver lip, would made them look bigger (with rim high polished silver)

Or just go old school, black on black......on black
