New Shoes

Just installed. What do you think? I was hoping for them to be red and match the interior, but orange is my favorite color so I'm on the fence.

Not for me. They look ok w AW, i guess?

Are they new? Looks like a loft of curb rash on the right rear, but might be a trick with the light/photo.

Car is Mineral White. The rash is just lighting from the flash.

Not a good combo if the interior is Fox Red.

Digging the rears concave look but that orange is wild! I am slapping red on my wheels so I guess I'm a hypocrite.

Would look great if you had more orange accents on your car, like side gills, mirror covers and a bbk

I really like the orange pop of color but personally i think it would be something I would get tired of rather quickly

the wheels are dope but not feeling the orange on AW. Would look better on a black car if anything. Red is probably a better alternative.

Hmm, interesting choise. I am very conservertive when it comes to modding my car. I don't think I will choose those. But I am sure there will be others who appreciate the choise including owner. Enjoy.

Your right, I think if your going to keep the wheel than may I suggest gloss black lip with a satin black face.

OK so i've decided I do NOT like the orange and want to stick to the original plan of them being red. I need some help deciding if I should color match to the fox red interior or would this color red work with it?

Your entitled to your own opinion. However sarcastic and biased as that may be. Thanks for the feedback.
