Style 5030 18 inch wheels

Post by morini » Fri Oct 19, 2018 6:02 pm

Quick question on these as they are standard fit on the car I am waiting for. In the brochure I downloaded from jag website the finish on the non diamond cut parts looks to be a metalic gray(ish) colour, however, on the online configurator for my car they have a black finish. This is the link for the config https://build.jaguar/EEB9FA43

Have they changed this recently? I like the black better with a white car, which probably means I will end up with the gray ones :roll:

They look to be a dark grey - I had a look this morning when at the dealers as they have a new R-Sport in the showroom - forgot to take a picture but here is one from autotrader

I have an R Sport with these same wheels. I have only ever seen them in Grey, but they sometimes look darker or lighter depending on lighting and angle viewed etc. Admittedly the wheels in your download do look very dark. Remember though, photos sometimes are digitally enhanced or have their contrast tweeted to improve the finished item. Maybe the wheel photo was over processed.

Yes, you chaps are no doubt correct, I've only ever seen these wheels with the painted parts metallic grey. Must be done for effect on the configurator. Shame though, as they would look nice with the non "machine cut" bits painted black. I'll be happy either way, just want to get the car now!

I can't find it at the moment but one member had his refurbed and changed the dark grey to black and it looked pretty nice.
