Red 220M Wheels?

I've got a Space Gray with Fox Red E92. I am going to get 220M wheels painted a satin black. I was wondering if anyone has seen these done in red? I've seen the Volk TE37's that were in red on an SG. I really liked the look, but not sure how it would turn out on the 220Ms. Can anyone photoshop these?

I guess it really depends what color Red it is. The Red you are referring to is off a Porsche. It wouldnt hurt but on the 220M's it would look rather strange since the spoke design only looks good in certain colors.

At the end of the day it's your car dude, if you feel compelled to do it then do it.
Imagine what the guys who didnt have photoshop did when they had an idea..=)

ON a space gray? i would toss that idea out. just saying... your first option on painting it black is that best. keep it at that...

although if you want to be different. i say go for it... but be aware and make sure you put your flame suit on.

I'm getting them painted black this coming week. I was just thinking aloud. I'm not ready to put on any flame suit. Maybe someone else will do it...

Get them painted in a charcoal or a dark shade of grey and shelve the red idea please.
