Which Finish for Alloy Technic Mesh on SSII ?

Sup Guys....

ok so here is the deal...

Been loving the Alloy Technic Mesh wheels. I made up my mind that im gonna go for them.

I still don't know which finish i want to go for. should i go for Charcoal ? Or Brushed Aluminum ? Im leaning more to Charcoal.

I got a SSII E93. your opinion is appreciated

Thanks...

Mokhtar

I'd say charcoal would be my choice. The brushed would probably be a little monotone.

The AT rims are one piece forged so they are quite strong

I'd go charcoal but either way you can't loose. Excellent wheels and they look great.

Done business with Peter as well in the past and he's a great vendor!

i like Silver (classic!) and the brushed finish on the SSII. Either way, I feel like you can't go wrong with the AT Mesh.
