What colour should I plastidip my wheels?

I was thinking about plastidiping my steelies for winter dark blue or purple this weekend. I don't know how that would look on race red. Any suggestions for colour?



I don't have a better pic and its to dark to get one right now

I think they look good black. Thats what Im running now on my Ruby Red hatch. Did you buy an extra set for winter or did it come with them.

It may not be an actual plastidip colour (therefore it would need paint over plastidip) but teal wheels work on red.

It came with 17s I'm using them for summer. I figure with plastidip I can have some fun with silly coloured wheels then change them back if I don't like them. Also I think it'll satisfy my need to mod for the next little while

I hadn't thought of painting the plastidip, that opens a lot more options for colour

Since its for fun I would rock hot pink or yellow. A lot of people around here don't get jokes which makes them more funny quite often
