So I bought these excellent Work Meister 18" 3 piece split rims from ChrisT70. Lovely rims and looking forward to getting them on the car. Have decided to get the centre/face painted a different colour to go better with my Vesuvius C2S. Narrowed it down to

Matte Gunmetal face/polished silver lip
matte bronze Face/polished silver lip
Matte gold face/polished silver lip

So from this



To one of the three options above that you can see here
https://www.s2ki.com/forums/sponsor-s2000-exterior-s2000-interior-deals-184/work-meister-s13p-custom-color-many-offset-s2000-fitments-1060300/#PhotoSwipe1510099511670

Thoughts?

I'm leaning towards the bronze centres at the moment. 3 days to decide.

I'll go with your first choice - gun metal with silver lip.

My Cup 2s are finished like that and look great. I think I would go to that if I don't like what I do first time round!

Yep I think it would contrast the paint really well... But then I keep looking at the gunmetal... Decisions decisions!

Body colour or Gunmetal IMO. Bronze would work better on Black or White but I can't see it working with Vesuvius. Question

Steer clear of Gold as there's only one 993 in the village with Gold Centred Splits... and that's mine. Grin

I'd go for grey out of the choices you listed, but also like body coloured centres on a dark coloured car.

Funnily enough, you've inspired me. I often wondered what my car would look like with darker wheels (black Fuchs on the shopping list) so today I've invested the heady sum of £20 in some wrap to try on my wheels as a "proof of colour". If... a-hem...if it's not a complete f-up, I'll share pictures. Otherwise, you'll never hear this mentioned again Wink

I'd be interested in how you get on - I've been contemplating plasti-dipping my hollowspokes in satin black, leaving the rim silver...
