IMHO the black looks really clean, but go for the red if you want!

Wow. When I switched back to the plasti dipped stock 15's, I watched my fuel efficiency go through the roof. I was getting 27-29 MPG with the 15 spoke 17" rims, but now after an 80 mile trip, I'm showing 43.4 MPG.

Not. Too. Shabby.

That's only if you run heavy 17" rims. My 17x7.5" rims weigh about 3lbs lighter than my stock 16" rims do.
