Alloys or steels?
Alloys or steels on my D250 Commercial. Love the steel wheels but saw the same vehicle today with alloys and it did look nice.

Both nice… but I do prefer the darker alloys. Sorry!

I think both can look good. Depends what tickles your fancy really. The white roof with the white steels really does work very well and makes it look less urban mall crawler.

And arguably even better if you can add the white side panels too. Although not sure how easy this or if it is an option when buying.

Off topic but hard top looks good with colour coded sides

Not a fan of dark-coloured wheels - white steels are classless Cool

Thanks for the replies

l think l will stick with the steel wheels. l've also got a brand new set of five steel wheels with tyres in the garage that l bought for next to nothing last year.

l looked at getting my roof sprayed white but apparently it's complicated because you can't remove the alpine windows etc

The body shop recommended a wrap, which l will look into.

Yes I think a white wrapped roof would be perfect and the best of all options.
