They are the originals spray painted. The car is back in the morning so they can clean the tyres up. Can't wait for the sun to come out.

Having two new front tyres fitted tomorrow. Rears have already been changed due to combination of a nail in one and pothole damage on the other side. Neither were repairable but they were getting near the limit to be changed anyway.
Will look at getting my wheels done next as they look very bad compared to yours

Very good - but how long before you scratch them?  Shocked

I am being careful but they will be easier to touch up.  Apparently there is a limit to the number of times the alloy can be polished if kerbed,  this seemed a good alternative.  When the sun is on them they do shine nicely.  It is meant to be nice on Sunday so it will get a good clean and polish, will add a photo then.

Thanks for the good feedback I like them but it was a risk as I wouldn't be able to take them back to the black and silver.

Nooo the garage suggested painting them to match the grills frames at the front but I am happy.

You can, but just not black/polished without a lot of work.
