I rather like three-spoke alloys... :)

2, but maybe a different colour.

Hello I have these alloys unpainted/diamond cut. Do you happen to have these painted and on your car? I'd be interested to take a look. It's not something I've ever seen done but it has crossed my mind.

Lee, I have never really seen a Diamond Cut Alloy sprayed in any other color than Grey or Black. If you look at the attachment it might be of interest regarding Diamond Cur Wheels, but regarding color I would suggest speaking with a local Alloy Wheel Repair Specialist on what could be done - Dave 😉

Another method would be a DIY method of using a Spray Film from Foliatec which you can spray on and Peel Off if you do not like it.

Not my wheels, just a picture I saw of some. Diamond cut alloys can be finished in any colour, once they have have been stripped properly 1st.

Looking to get mine done in the spring.
