Opinions on painting ZCP's Guards Red?

I've got a Space Gray car and was thinking about changing the color of the wheels. Guards red looks good on a SG car but I'm concerned that it may be too much on a ZCP wheel given it's design. Thoughts/opinions?

If anyone can photoshop this - that would be really helpful!

Barry

Is this for daily use or track, Barry?

daily. track use only would not be an issue really. this is coming from a guy with a bright orange track car....

i think i know the answer here (would look tacky for daily use) but i thought i'd ask...

IMHO colored wheels doesn't work on mesh/thin spoke type wheels.

Saw this picture in the Bimmerfest thread courtesy of EAS. Red ZCPs just on a white car.

Picture is post extremely large, so here is the link to the picture

Would be ballsy on a daily driver, even though I like the idea as something different. I always find that it looks a little too much "I'm trying to be a GT3 RS", especially with the mirror covers and other bits to match.

I actually like that a lot. Very tempting...

Thanks!

With a dedicated track car in the stable, I'd say fuck it and do it! If you're asking it means you want to, and compromise and rule adherence are for pussies! Let everyone else be sheep! Sorry don't know where that came from

You've seen Martin D's old build with the red Volks on his SG and it looks tits

Go for it Barry. I just wouldn't use red anywhere else on the car.
