    v8 Black Audi R8 - Black alloy wheels or Original?

    Hi everyone.

    Just looking for some opinions to be honest.

    My Audi R8 currently is black with the diamond cut rims which I really like.

    What’s your opinion on powder coating the rims black?

    I like the black look, looks stealth and very sporty.

    But at the same time, looks a little bit boy racer.

    Whereas diamond cut silver looks classy and fierce, contrasts well with the black imo.

    I also like it as it’s OEM, how it came out the garage. I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to change it as it will ruin the Audi look it was born with.

    What’s your opinion guys?

    Here’s a couple pics of the two styles (neither are mine but just off autotrader)

    since your r8 still has some chrome accents like the grill and emblems I would suggest the diamond cut/brush chrome finished wheels. I posted mine on the picture forum if you would like to see what it'll look like on your car.

    You could compromise and go with a titanium color:

    I prefer the original polished look as the black just gets lost in the shadows. The polished wheel also looks a bit classier.

    I agree


    I’m leaning towards diamond cut with dark inserts Like this:
