Inspire me with your choice of wheel colour on a black L322

I’m thinking of changing the colour of mine:

Keep it the same, it looks very nice the way it is, and will keep the classic look.
Black will look too Gangsta IMHO, but it’s a personal thing.
(I’ve done my L405 wheels Shadow Chrome, but it’s Corris Grey so they look OK). “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” -where’s the fun in that?

Something like gunmetal grey. I sometimes like the darker colour of mine when they are dirty and have wondered whether to do it myself. Thumbs Up

I like both of the above suggestions. Was going to suggest shadow chrome. Not black…..

Thank you. I was thinking black and had second thoughts along similar lines, esp with the tinted windows. But living in SE London, projecting a certain look can be to your advantage. Take the other day when I went to the convenience store dressed in an Adidas tracksuit and white baseball cap. It’s the first time the aggressive beggar outside didn’t demand money from me. That saved me having to ask yet again whether he likes sex and travel. So the black wheel option hasn’t entirely left the building….

Gunmetal was my second option and rapidly rose to first place after re-considering the full gangster alternative. I couldn’t find a pic of a black L322 with gunmetal wheels. Hoping one might be posted here.

Thank you.

Shadow chrome is a colour I’m not familiar with but it conjures up a nice image. Any pics of a shadow chrome wheel? Even better if it’s on a black L322.

I’m thinking a close match to the shade on the front bumper strip or bonnet panel could work. Alternatively, I’d almost certainly get both those parts painted to match the wheels. I’m sure I’m not the only one here with colour match OCD.

Nah, keep it silver, gunmetal look dirty all the time, black just horrible.

Go to all that expense to have a nice set of wheels and then paint them black, go figure.

Just leave it as it is. It looks right.

Whatever you do, don't paint them black. The black on black on black on black with black tints and black accents with black bits look has been done to death. 2012 (L322) 4.4TDV8 Vogue SE, RSE, Fuji White over Arabica.

Agree on the general dislike for black wheels, esp. on a black car and even more so on a Range Rover, unless you’re going for that wannabe gangsta look Laughing

Recently had mine refurbished shadow chrome, which was one of the OE options for the wheels I have fitted.

Your car looks great and I really like that colour on the wheels.

The black wheels option has now left the building. And ‘leave as is’ has returned. I do like the original colour though it doesn’t key to anything else on the car and I can’t get my head around why it looks so good. Is it just the contrast?

One thing I like about the shadow chrome option is that it picks up the grey tones elsewhere on my car - running board trim, bonnet panel and lower front bumper strip.

Very nice! Have you got a pic of the whole car? And how to I contact Steve about those great centre caps?
