Pretoria finish

Recommended Posts

Not side by side but there was this thread.  Some pics showing 19” CM Pret reps (in gunmetal shade) and some 19” oem silver (Blue Chrome) Prets on a couple cars.  The CM Prets Silver is quite a bit brighter than the oem Prets.

I`m still looking for a picture of a genuine Pretoria next to a rep so I can see the colour difference.

 

Can anyone help?


Assuming it’s the silver version you’re interested in seeing the colour difference of. 
 

OEM Pretoria (more pictures at the link - https://www.kunzmann.de/shop/en/wheels-golf7-volkswagen-5-spoke-r-light-alloy-wheel-set-pretoria-19-inch-vw-golf-7.htm )

I’ve tried looking and can’t find the post I mean.
99% it was 2 wheels in silver side by side showing the small difference in spine shape and colour.

 

I vaguely recall seeing a pic like that.  IIRC I thought the OEM blue/silver Pret was more to my liking than the much brighter silver on the CM wheel

I too prefer the OEM colour.

To complicate things further-  there was chat on here a bit back (can’t find it tho) about an additional shade of Silver from CM Alloys for the Pret. Replicas. 
Less BRIGHT. Quartz Silver maybe.  Might be worth an email to them.

Yes Neil, I`ve seen the pics of quartz silver, they`re a bit more in the right direction of colour but I guess I`d actually need to see them in person.

Or for someone who actually has both and can compare.
