White on Red or Black on Red?

Fancied a change from the Rages for a bit and was looking to get some OEM 18s sprayed black.

I managed to pick up some whites ones cheap, now they are on the car I am unsure if they look mint and it isn't worth 300 to spray black or whether they are just loud and in your face, black on red is the way to go and the way I was going in first place?!?

What do you guys think?

I like both, sorry!

If it were me I would put it down to whatever else I have planned. If I wanted the GP pack in black then I would have black wheels too!

Anthracite wheels look very cool and subtle on red IMHO. Mugen uses that combo on its RR IIRC

White wheels reminds me of a JDM look.

I think they look awesome in your photo. However.... I love the look of black and red overall. Especially when you can get the GP kit, and black wing mirror caps. Would look awesome if you did that. Could also get the Red H logos for centre caps made by gers and stick them on once sprayed.

My overall opinion is.... Car looks awesome

But Black wheels would look better

Good luck choosing.

PS. Im considering getting my rages done in black at this moment

I don't mean to hi-jack the thread tom001 but what about white on black? I've been thinking about getting a set of championship white alloys in the future but not sure how they'll look?

I would say go with the black alloys on a red car mate, they'll look much better

I must be weird too then.

From looking at the photo i think the car looks great with white on red.
Spraying them black would be a mistake IMO, but then i suppose its all a matter of personal taste.

Cheers peeps. I suppose I will leave them as they are for now and then change in summer if I go off them. They certainly get a lot of looks
