Color Scheme

Post by 05MoparSRT4 » Wed Aug 20, 2014 10:59 pm

Looking for opinions, suggestions etc....

I'm looking into new wheels or getting an extra pair of OEM wheels and powder coating them a different color. I'm over the red and black look. For new wheels what do you guys suggest? and what color will blend well with my red calipers... I'm lowered too by the way. I was thinking about getting this girls teal motegi ff7 wheels but I don't think they would blend well with the red calipers and then sometimes I think they will. I have my VC powder coated gloss black and getting my intake manifold powder coated similar color in the engine bay. Would like my wheels to match. Also thought of white on black?? but to common and would need to be cleaned after every ride.......anyways opinions?

I was going to suggest white on black but, as you pointed out, they would have to be cleaned often. On the other hand, white on black would go along with red calipers IMO. I think that adding an additional color might make things too busy. :-k

You'd be surprised how little difference the caliper color will make.

I vote gold, NOT bronze.

If you wind up with the FF7s, I still vote gold.

I vote drop down to a 45 series tire from a 50, and throw on some spacers for better wheel fitment and call it a day. I like the clean look of a lowered SRT on stock wheels

What a stellar idea. I think I'll give that a whirl.

I'm going black/burnt copper.

Wheels WERE going to be bronze, but i couldnt find a good paint to do them with. I tried several paints, and the bronze seemed to be way too dull.
