    Evening all. I'm in the process of booking my alloys in to be refurbed...

    The guy at the shop asked if I want the standard diamond cut outer edge, all silver or all with a chrome flick in them like they have now....?

    What would they have been out the box? Normal silver with polished outer lip? I know they corrode but I would be happy to have them that way if that's how they should be.

    Opinions pls. And pics would be good of them with polished edge as google doesn't bring nought up.

    These did not have a polished lip but were hyper silver.

    Yep, as far as I know these were all hyper silver.

    Thanks for the input... I'll go with the standard 'hyper' silver.

    Is that like an iridium silver or more of a darker finish?

    They look close to hyper silver now.
