Hey all - So my wheels need a refurb and i started looking at colours. I wondered if someone could explain the subtle difference between Titanio and Silver (i currently have silver neptunes)? What does Antracite Grey also look like? Any pics of Titanio and Antracite on a black GTS? I found the attached from the original brochure I believe.

Thanks

We had a chap called Matt Hodgetts in a few weeks back and he had some shadow chrome wheels on his GS.

These look stunning. I think Matt is on here, Matt can you give us the contact/spec/prices?

They looked like ball polished on the front fading to anthracite in where the brake dust would sit...perfect!

Hi Guys,

I recently had mine refinished at Lepsons. Have used them several times in the past and have always been 100% happy with the finish, service and turn around time. No other associations apart from being a very happy customer. Not the cheapest in town, but the finish is 100% flawless!

Here are a couple of pics to give you an idea. The finish is called Black Chrome, very similar to BMWs Shadow Chrome as seen on quite a few M cars of a few years back.
You can use the calculator on the website to get a price. Lots of pics in the gallery to get an idea of colours available.

I think they achieve this finish by starting out with a black base, then layering the silver so it remains semi transparent. The more silver that's applied, the lighter they get. Clearcoat over the top to finish.
Quite hard to capture the effect in pics, but they appear deep and quite 3 dimensional without looking bling IMHO.

By the way, the trident caps have not been painted. They are originals and although they are of a different material/ finish, the match is good.

Cheers Matt, I have made a note of that finish.

Having washed your car so being up close I was very, very impressed with the look and quality.

Getting mine done is 'on the list' like the grigio Mercury, but also like red tridents in the centre caps, and you can't get mercury caps with red tridents, plus I have a brand new set of silver caps just like @Chimaera500 's decisions decisions

Black chrome was the OEM wheel colour on my Subaru Legacy Spec B, it’s lovely and as Matt says changes with the angle 84972
