Arrow color choice for wheels

Greetings all

I am getting a set of 110 steel wheels put on the 90 next week, I am undecided on the color for the wheels
I want to get some feed back for what color to do. The truck is Coniston Green with a fiberglass hard top.

Thanks

Choices are
  1. Gloss Black
  2. Matte Black
  3. Alpine White
  4. Coniston Green

also..
isnt the white "limestone white"?
Alpine white is that bright white...

I'm in the same boat as you are, so this pole will help me too, as I have a canniston green truck with the white top, and would like to get some steelies

This summer I was planning to get a tan soft top for the defender. I had the matte black on the black defender, and currently it has Safari Gard Glossy Black Steel Wheels.
On the 110 ten they were Alpine White, same color as the body.

I think black looks good, it just seems so "urban assault." White is certainly a good safe choice, and very traditional, but might not be the hot set up with a tan top. If you went Coniston green would would you keep the edges of the rims silver or go totally green?

I'm all about silver, silver is free!

How about some spinners...i think you might fit 26's on it and then your tire would look like a rubber band because the sidewall would be so thin.....You would be blinging down the trail....

Martin, where did you get the rims? I've been looking for a set.

I think the alpine white is the way. Especially with green and a tan top. You have a retro rover 'look' going on....

I say you take the top 2 vote getters.
Put one color on one side and the other color on the other side.

RoversNorth, they were cheaper then going through the parts department. They are the 6.5 inch, you can get the 5.5 for cheap at BritishPacific.
