      Ideas for wheel refinishing

      Hey all. 2006 v70 ice white with Orpheus rims

      I’m getting my rims refinished due to some curb rash on 2 of them. The refinisher will paint it any color. Ideas other than stock? Maybe a different color will hide brake dust. What have you guys seen that works?

      Thanks!

      I'm going matte bronze. Hides brake dust like a champ and I think it looks awesome with white cars.

      Home done Graphite on my Tethys, definitely hid brake dust and looked good to me
