Wheels

I currently have the 5 spoke wheels. The previous owner painted them, and then one got damaged so he replaced it with a non painted factory color. The factory color is too light for me and was wondering what would be the best color to paint them. The other 3 are currently a gray and I want to change all 4 wheels. Iím going to paint the brake calipers red again too:

personally on a silver body car, for me it would be gun metal or silver to match the car its one or the other pretty much for all my cars.. i have a set of rota slipstreams that will be cleaning up which are gunmetal centers with the outer edge and lip silver and really like that look

So do you think black on red would look good? I was thinking about it but wanted to know all my options.

never really seen black on red ive seen red pin striped on black before... my brother in law had his rims redone black then had someone hand brush the red in and i really like the look but thats on his car and i'm not mentioning that brand here xD

looking at some rims on google they would defiantly stand out and make a statement

wait for others to chime in =D there is many others here who have exotic rims and may have some alternate ideas that may get your attention and liking...

me ive always been clean lined ive never been one to get a bright red or bright orange focus and probably never will its not to my "personal" liking me i like my cars blacked out or at least a decent dark color. my British racing green jag will eventually get its turn in line for its body work and paint and will probably be painted my old Focus's color which is Twilight Blue (looks black at night and dark blue during the day) and most of my rims will either stay aluminum, be painted silver or just blacked out the only set i like the way they are is the rotas which came as a Gun metal with slight gold/red hue and the silver band around the outer edge those rims will probably have the corrosion bubbles fixed dipped to treat the existing finish and probably resealed.

of course i have like 4 sets of stock 2000-2004 factory rims laying around.. so many i use them as seats in my garage and still have spares laying around

I finally painted the wheels. They ended up as a super dark gray almost black. Painted the brake calipers red as well. Thanks for the input!
