Graphite Pegs / Titan / Volans Color difference?

Is there a difference in color between the three rims? I've read around that the Titans are darker than the Pegs. Does anyone have pics to compare? I also read a thread that there were two types of Graphite Pegs? (one being black chromish and the other being a more brake dust like color)<p>Also, is Volvo color 932 (Anthracite) the graphite color for the pegs volans or titans? (or are they the same) and if not whats the color code for the other ones?<p>Thanks everyone!

Both the same<br>(I have both wheels and have touched up both)<br>932 is the correct color, remember you must use <B>FLAT clear</B>, not semi gloss

Early Graphite Pegs were some sort of black chrome effect, later rims were like the Titans but not exactly the same.<p>

They are not the same, just close.. The "Graphite Pegs" have a slightly brighter color than the "Anthracite" colored Titans/Volans.<p>Why would they be the same color if they have different names anyways?<p><IMG SRC="http://upload.awineshop.com/files/DSC_2834.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>The yellow further away has "Graphite", and mine are a custom powdercoat that I wanted closer to Anthracite/trim color.

Re: (Barry)

The 18" Graphite Pegs my brother has mounted on his V70R appear less glossy than new 17" Titans I have in a box here.<br>

Re: (Johann)

I can probably do that for you later, I have both here<br>Barry I would have agreed with you in the past but when I look at them side by side now they sure seem to be the the same color.<br>I have an unmounted Ti Peg, I can stand it right up to my 850R and take a side by side

Re: (JRL)

Awesome, thanks JRL, judging from the pics there is practically no difference, were it not for the R on the Pegs I would have a really hard time guessing which was which.<p>BTW: you should think about painting your calipers <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Barry)

Easy way to tell, Titans have a lip, Pegs do not
