Black on a silver truck always looms good (or a dark colour anyhows)

To be honest, I'm leaning towards body colour. I've got black wheels at the moment and I've also 'done' black wheels on a previous Land Rover, so definitely want a change. In an ideal world, I'd go for white but I don't think it goes with a metallic finished vehicle Confused

I'd go for Limestone, an original LR colour, it's a little bit softer on the eye than white. Santorini 90XS SW

Body colour in your case would not look good imo. Gloss black would be perfect, but if you want a change, I’d go for a gloss anthracite grey, like the Sawtooth wheels on the LXV limited edition. That contrast of the darker anthracite grey wheels on your lighter grey metallic truck would be nice, but not jump in your face. And certainly no metallic for those steel wheels. Just my 5 pence of course.
Eric You never actually own a Defender. You merely look after it for the next generation.

Thanks for the suggestions, chaps. Anthracite is an interesting idea. I did wonder if it may be too close to the body colour to be distinct but I'll take another look. Darren

Argh, my eyes Shocked

Wheels now delivered to paint shop and having been able to see an example next to the vehicle, I have gone with anthracite Cool

Could be ready by Saturday but then I need to sort new tyres, so probably won't be fitted for a week or so. Darren
