Hi Donner..what where your original wheels? Where they the 17inch silver alloys?? I have similar Captur with the silver alloys which I personally think suit the ivory & Diamond black combo perfectly.. but thats me & everyone has different tastes which can be let loose on the Captur with great affect That is why its become so popular because of the perceived personalisation.
Looks lovely Donner..showroom sheen..even with the wheels you don't like??? Had some rain last night and mine was covererd in sand I presume was in rain..had it jetwashed and polished..the diamond glitter in the black roof looking good in the Easter Sunshine.. I just love my Captur..
stil like the black plus alloy look so easy to clean.had 17 spoke wheels on my focus spent more time trying to clean wheels than car nightmare.the wheels on my captur don't seem to collect the dust from the discs on the front that my focus did.
Nice trims Donner. Hope you can keep them clean though.
I have had many a nightmare with cleaning alloys in the past. My last car - a Renault Megan had areas that I could not access easily. In the end, I gave up and they looked a mess. My new black / silver alloys seem really easy to clean so far. Somebody came up to me the other day and commented on how good they looked.
PS - Why do ivory captur's always look like a gleaming white in photos ???
Lower profile tyres will certainly look better however the rim will then need to bea size or two up otherwise the overall combined wheel and tyre will look far too small for the car; it will look underwheeled.
Being diplomatic here....I like the original rims as they are easy to keep clean..
I wonder how the car would look on 18 or 19's? ....interesting thought....I seem to be one of those people on the forum who is not chasing to get every drop of fuel economy from the Captur ... I would worry about low profile tyres here in Poland on potholed roads though!!
Managed to pick up my new one on Tuesday before the lock down.
Chose one from stock an Iconic in Iron Blue. Traded in my 3 year old Captur that I had no problems with and started another PCP.
Very impressed with the Mark 2 and itching to take it for a decent drive at some point when allowed.
Finished apart from new seat covers and mats to go in...... smile_big:
No small amount of work, although it doesn't look like much.... I ended up spraying ALL the external black plastic satin black (bumpers, wheel arches, doors, the lot!) - wipe over with a damp cloth and it comes up like new...
