    ^^^^^^^ agreed, not always a fan of red but think it will be spot on for your alloys

    I agree with red, if you can match the colour on your alloys.

    However if you can't match the colour, then I would go for black. There is nothing worse than having clashing colours, as it just looks tacky!

    But to be honest they don't look that bad and if they were mine, I would leave them the way they are.

    There's nothing like being indecisive and sitting on the fence is there?

    red would work with the wheel outline, but ive just done my wheels black and it looks mint with yellow calipers, but red and black wheels with yellow calipers might look a bit odd

    gonna do mine red tommorrow. I was going to get a meduim blue, but i dont think it would stand out enough against the black. Black cars need a strong light vivid colour, lighter cars need a darker strong colour. If i had a red car though i honestly dont know what colour i would choose. Maybe sliver or black calipers
