Sterling grey, ideally. I think the candy red would have been okay too. Even black (nice Darth Vader look up front). I added tinting last Friday and that helps. Also plan to paint the calipers red.

I switched from the stock summer Michelin 235/40VR18s to all-season Kumhos after the first 500 miles and noticed no appreciable loss in handling. I plan to sell the Michelins next springtime when guys are getting ready to put summer tires on.
