So the question stands.

I have the Stock Silver Rims.

Nice to have you back Crow...

If you have ghetto gold rims, the gold theme may be nice, but I have also seen a red trend in some of the green cars...

Got a pic so we can see?

I have the gold wheels, so I went with red. Red would still look good on yours with the silver rims. Gold would look sweet too. But black wouldn't stand out too much. Ppl have to see those calipers when they're painted. They'll look sweet.

After seeing the pic, I'd paint them red. And the drums too! They look good red, believe me.

I'm going to have to say red, it'* a good contrast to green and will be really noticable.

I painted mine red.

It added an extra 10hp to my engine, and stopped me 10% better... just by painting them red.


hehe

But seriously.... I did paint mine red, and they look wicked

i'd have to say red because mine are gold. LOL J/K no the reason i say that is b/c your rims arent open enough for gold. Red will stand out much better with a closed rim like urs.
