OK,
When I got the Passat from Gary It came with 3 BBS CH-028 Audi 18X8 wheels.
I have finally located another (4 months of heavy looking). The wheels I got from Gary are powdercoated black and the other is OEM Audi Reflex Silver. I am planning on having them all powder coated the same color (approx. $350). I loved the Black ones untill I saw the Reflex silver. With my Beige / Tan color (Savannah Beige) I am not so sure about any colors and what would look good. If I go with black, I am going to finish blacking out the rest of the trim as well.
Just wanted some opinions, like I said - I liked the black all right and I like the silver pretty good as well, but just wanted some other's opinions / ideas, before I go ahead and powder coat these.

i'm guessing having them powdercoated the same color of the car is out of the question then? why not just paint them?

I had actually been thinking a darker brown with a polished lip as well.
I think that with all the black trim it needs to be either silver to match the chrome pieces, or???
There is a photo on the vortex of the metalic rootbeer colored ones, but I cannot find them now.
I'm thinking, thanks for the ideas so far. Keep 'em comming.

I like the silver better than the black.....the black is just too bland.....wheels make a car....polished would look good probably the brown too

Washed the car today, it lightened up 2 shades w/o all the road grime on it... I hate all this rain. Any way thanks to the visual aid from tron, I amn probably going to go with a metalic rootbeer color. The links to the Vortex is the same color as what I saw, but a different wheel.
Silver < Rootbeer for now.
@Don - the sticker is tough stuff. I peeled it off the back window and put it there. When the weather warms up I am going to get one for kermit. I have to change out the windows and seals first.
