Photoshop request?...

Can anyone photoshop an M6 Time Attack wheel on a Melbourne red metallic e92 M3? I'd really appreciate it. I've seen one PS pic of it but would like to see more, thx!

Here's a link w/some pics of the wheels:

And here's a link w/tons of pics of Melbourne red metallic:

Thx, I really appreciate it. You think it's too aggressive/racy of a combo? If you or anyone else has any other suggestions for aftermarket wheels (other than silver colored) on a Melbourne red metallic e92 M3 then please post some pics (wheels mounted if possible) and/or recommendations. I have a few weeks to decide before going to status 112. It's either Melbourne red metallic/black leather/brushed aluminum trim or Silverstone II metallic/Fox red leather/carbon leather trim.

well i dont like it for the following reasons:
1. i dont like mixing car wheels, like CSL's on a 5er, or 6er wheels on 3er, etc.
2. reps are heavier than stock
3. their black is GLOSS! that's like rolling in chrome wheels. that was cool 5 years ago, not anymore

btw im a photoshop failure

1) Different strokes for different folks. I usually don't like that either...but the M6 wheel design looks so dayam good especially on an M3. But the more I look at PS pics of it, I think the Time Attack version might look a little too aggressive.
2) These wheels are 23-24 pounds (info from **********s.com) each compared to the oem M6 wheels (info from m6board.com) which are 28-29 pounds each. Then again I'm not sure which one's stronger since both are cast-aluminum.
3) LOL, again different strokes for different folks. I'm not a flat black kinda guy. IMO, flat black makes an aftermarket wheel look like steel wheel. The only time I'd rock flat black wheels is if I'm on the track since I don't care what color wheels I have on there.

Thx for the attempt anyway.

The only red M3 I've seen these on (that aren't PS) is on a vert' e46 M3. Pics of it are in that link in the 1st post. Yeah, any help would be greatly appreciated.
