    Wheel Rim colour difference JBW all Silver or Silver Highlight?

    Hi guys. JB Wheels don't have the RIMS I was after in an All Silver colour. Only in a Silver Highlight. Can anyone tell me what the difference in the colour might be please.? I have always used Silver Minilite colour. Thank you.

    I'd hazard a guess at All Silver being exactly what it says and Silver Highlight having the spokes painted with polished rims.

    Have you tried phoning or emailing them to ask what the difference is?

    Basically as Rob says, their wheels seem to have a highly polished outer rim so maybe that's what they mean by silver highlight.

    Compomotive do a very nice Minilite copy wheel but even those aren't any longer UK made, once again the Far East.

    The highlights are as previously stated, painted centres with diamond cut rims. Have you tried R&R alloys for some ?

    I have bought a set of Revolution 7 x 15's for my Mk2 in Gold. A very nice looking wheel of reasonable quality but unfortunately they are made in China. I have not used them for competition as yet.
