If you own a grey car, it’s fair to assume that it reeks of elegance and stability. Buying a grey vehicle is more of a mature decision for most people. But man, does it look classy. Moreover, some people prefer the calm and composed yet powerful aura native to grey, and the slightly reduced need for maintenance.
But what further enhances its charm is the impeccable selection of wheels. Grey is a neutral shade, and it is safe to assume that you won’t have to travel lengths to get a wheel color that rocks. However, the versatility doesn’t mean you get to set yourself loose. So the real question is, what color wheel rims go best with grey cars? Read on to find out.
There is something undeniably cool about matte black that always leaves the observer in awe. After all, black is the hot shade that can add an imperial yet aggressive look to a car. Matte black wheel rims will add “the” touch of style to your car, complimenting the darker tint of grey. We think this is possibly the best color for your wheels to match with a grey car.
Cleaning a matte black wheel is pretty much the same as any other wheel, although you will need to fend off silicon-based products as well as heavy acids to protect the matte look. We recommend using a synthetic formula to protect your wheels as natural wax has a lower melting point. Moreover, you might need to do the cleaning for dust more often than most other colors.
Wheel for Black Color: ENKEI EDR9
When it comes to matte black wheels, Enkei EDR9 takes the lead. EDR9 is a part of the performance series by Enkei. It features a 9-spoke design to avert any calamities. Furthermore, it is SPEC-E tested, which means it has been passed through rigorous testing. Therefore, we consider the product safe for you to drive the road in fashion.
EDR9 can be availed in two colors; Matte black and silver, and in a variety of sizes as well. It comes In 15,16,17, and 18 inches. The only chink in the armor is that you have to buy lug nuts separately before using these. However, compared to the stiffness, stability, and performance of the wheels, the factor seems to disappear into the mist.

Custom-cut grey wheel rims are more than just a way to stand out from the crowd. In a world full of contrasting products, sometimes, monotony is the key. Grey wheels on a grey car, sleek, stylish, and durable, your car will be the envy of all your friends. For some, this combination might sound dull and exceptionally ordinary, but this is the dynamic duo.
Grey rims can be custom-made, painted, or store-bought. Cleaning grey wheels are pretty basic compared to other custom-painted wheels; soap and water would suffice. You can also use a pressure washer or a slightly acidic product. However, make sure the cleaning product remains to dilute and nothing too acidic. You do not want to mark the wheels with some ugly imprints, which will result from anything too concentrated.

Hyper Silver is a rather unorthodox paint for wheels. With a light base coat and a translucent outer color, it gives your wheels a smoky yet shiny outlook, making it nearly impossible not to observe. These wheels will provide you the radiance your grey car needs. Grey cars, in general, scream business from every stroke of paint. And hyper silver will support its mission perfectly.
Despite having a complicated paint composition, these can be cleaned just like any other finish; with soap and water. Although, we advise getting rid of any harsh chemicals. These wheels can be a tad on the expensive side, so you should compare prices before deciding to invest in them. However, if you got a free extra buck stored away, try this shade, and your car will thank you for it.
