Leave em! One of the nicest OEM wheels around i think... and the diamond cut on them makes them look stunning in motion too (which many wheels dont).. fine as they are!

I have had a similar dilema, I have reps that have corroded slightly, I was think of doing a 'Foxy' and getting them repainted, I was thinking about a grey (perhaps Platinum grey alla Curpra R).

I personally think the wheels will merge with the tyres and look lost if you had them sprayed black, especially as the bodywork of your car is such a vivid colour. The only way it would work would be to have a polished lip on them, but i don't really see how this would be done on the Santa Monica design [?].

Polished lip or keep them standard IMO.

Now what would look sexy is a set of the wheels MikeTDI got import prices for [;)]. 9.5 wide at the rear would look so good on your car. You would get at least ?500 for the santa's, more depending on the tyre condition.

What do you mean you're putting black mirrors on? As in black casing?

Am I the only one that thinks this'll look stoopid? Sorry....

Voted for black wheels though, would go nice with the other dark touches I think

Hmm, still sounds a little strange to me - but whatever floats your boat. As long as you like it that's all that matters [:D]

But be sure & post some pics up when you're done so we can all see the end result.
