The owner before me must have had really bad depth perception because my rims have some serious curb rash. So, I'm thinking about having my rims redone instead of replacements. (Yes, I actually like the 17" stock AMG rims!)

So I was playing with photoshop and want a second opinion on having the centers done in a darker gun-metal grey. What do you think?

They look great! I was thinking of doing the same thing with my '32's five spoke split spokr wheels. Looks very nice on a yellow car.... [;)]

I know I'm in the minority, but I've never cared for charcoal rims. They look nice, but I've always thought polished/machined rims looked better.

On your yellow car, though, I must admit they're pretty sharp.

I had my AMG rims refurbished too, considered going for a chrome effect, but ended up going with the original effect. The charcoaled design is a nice idea and looks good against a yellow car.

Black, not gunmetal grey. Gunmetal will not look as good as black.

I agree with black. There was a post a while back of a yellow SLK with black rims that looked sharp...

here it is...

Wow! They look great! Black would be another consideration. Makes the car look really different!
Have you lowered your car? Are your wheels the same size at all four corners? Good luck with whatever you decide[:)]FR///

MrLan1,

Where did u get ur front bumper/skirt?? is it part of the AMG package or something?? makes ur car look really cool!
us lucky ones have SPORT package which gets us whole new bumper, Side skirts, rear bumper and Staggered AMG wheels. i saw it in car and driver magazine and it was $4269 option. and cell phone/CD changer option was $1595. isn't it freaking rediculous?! lol
