    Thinking of going with red carbon fiber hydrodip after getting the cracks repaired and curb rash fixed. or just plain red....


    feel free to make suggestions, or photoshop them.

    the faux carbon fiber look is so 90s pepboys :disgust1:

    And really the red on red is too much for me... and this is coming from someone that likes and has had colorful wheels. I think a dark bronze would be cool, or just black. kinda your color scheme any way.

    i'd just say fuck it and buy new wheels since getting these redone will cost about the same (about a grand) but they are super light for 18s.

    matte black with red lip sounds really good..

    I couldn't resist, especially after you gave out such a wonderful source image with the PERFECT angle.

    i also vote bronze/gold.

    i also vote take the wrap off of your hood.

    bronze/gold wheels with your red car (ALL red, wrap off the hood) will look pretty good.

    i'll be removing the wrap in the spring, it's all messed up due to the paint explosion on the highway. the detailer was able to get it off of everything but i didnt bother having him wreck the existing vinyl. some of it can be scratched off with a fingernail but there are hundreds of small dots on it.
