I’m looking to purchase some aftermarket alloys for my Leon. I like the idea of bronze wheels to compliment the badges and I think they’ll look nice with the black paint. I’ve searched the net and haven’t seen too many examples of this combination. I’m wondering if anyone else has made this change and if you could post a pic? I do like the revo options but I haven’t settled on which ones yet.

There are alloy wheel suppliers which have websites with some good filtering options and on-car illustration of the selected alloys.
Here's a one good example:


I applied some color & diameter filters and selected Leon 5F.
It will display the car when you select a wheel.
You can change the car's paint to black or any other colour, by clicking the paint bucket icon at the bottom right of the car illustration.

Of course it couldn't substitute for a real photo but it is better than nothing I guess :)

Your right. This is very useful as a guide. It’s always a bit of a risk spending a couple of grand in blind faith they’ll look as good on the car how you hope in your mind. I’ve had a couple of expensive misses in the past. But I need to buy rubber so thinking a tyre 🛞 package could make sense

If you wanted to you could powder coat your existing wheels, the place doing mine found this as a very close match...

That's my wheels dropped off to get powder coated. Will post the pics when they are on the car, can't wait!

Got these loaner Audi wheels for the night! 😂

Wheels finished and I'm ecstatic with the results! 😍 Amazing match with the Seat copper/bronze colour. Would highly recommend the place that got it done for me, took 4 months of trial and error to get it across the line but well worth the wait. If anyone from Glasgow is looking for a wheel refurb I can pass on the details.
