Galvano grey Pretorias
« on: 02 April 2021, 13:50 »
I don’t suppose anyone has these on their car? Is it the grey that they came in on the mk7 R? Haven’t seen that colour in the flesh and debating whether it will look ok against limestone grey ..

The colour of the factory fit Pretoria wheels for the R is called blue chrome or something like that. Galvano grey as far as I know is different.

I think the Sebring wheels for the Polo R Line are the same colour, here's a Limestone Grey Polo

Thanks Guzzle, I guess if I go for them it will be a strange one anyway as Limestone grey can look so different in different lights .

I don’t know if this helps you but here are photos of my Indium grey GTi fitted with Pret copies from CM Wheels, which are Gloss Gunmetal.

Upon further research, apparently the Salvador wheels from the Mk7 Golf R Line are also Galvano Grey;-

I believe the T Roc Pret's are Dark Graphite and are quite a bit darker. :undecided:

Lots to consider there, thanks all... now I’ve just got to bite the bullet and order some. Think I’ve finally convinced myself to hang on to my 2016 for another year or so and think paying £400+ to have my wheels refurbed (tiny beginnings of white worm on 2 and 2 kerbed) is false economy.

There are some Dark Graphite 18" Genuine Pretorias, with Continental Premium6 tyres on ebay at the moment, item number 363338337477.

To give you an idea of what they look like against a grey car (indium in this case), have a look at this video:
