Question Need Advice colouring my wheels

Hello guys,

I'm going to paint my car to the Frozen Black paint but I can't decide to leave my wheels on black or another colour to get an unique look.

Now I have 3 choices to pick:
1: Stay on black
2: Red (Matte Finish)
3: Gun Metal (Matte Finish)

I have no pictures of my car now so I borrow M3 Piotr's car pictures I hope you don't mind with it

I need advice from you guys , photoshop help will be great.

Thanks in Advance!

Gloss red, match your tails. The comp wheels will look amazing in that color. Of course this would be a really bold look, don't know if you are into that.

@tlp: Painting the whole car is better than warping vinyl here since its easier to touch up the paint or repaint

I'm thinking to have it in Matte Red, but will be very outstanding and attract more attention lol.

@snowmants: Do you have any pic with grey wheels?

While you can't go too wrong with black on black I feel that the metallic shimmer from matte black when it's hit with light goes perfect with a little bit of brushed titanium. Check out the post by Strasse forged! It doesn't drown you out with black and actually draws your attention to the paint.
