Should I paint them red? NT03+m

Hey guys,

I just got a set of Enkei NT03+m as my track wheels for next season, I am still deciding if I should paint them RED or should I just keep them silver...Red would be cool on the track but I am afraid they would play out soon, silver is more classic on the other hand. What do you guys think?

Iphone pics, sorry about the bad quality.



Some pictures for reference,
The Red would be Porsche Guards Red, aka GT3RS RED..

Martin D's car with the same color te37,

M3E92's car with similar color,


Thanks guys.

I like silver. The red does look sick on the GT3 and Martin's car but the silver still gets my vote.

apperantly. I heard that if you plastic dip your exhaust it becomes louder giving you a deeper tone.

I would leave the rims silver. Not a fan of that ring towards the outside of the rim.

PAINT THEM! They are your track wheels, when you go to the track you want a change from the norm and besides you only live once! Can't wait to see pics.

Anywhere I can get it from the states? Or online?

I checked home depot in the states, they have 6 cans of red plastidip for $40, while we pay $20 a can up here...

Industrial Plastics and Paint in Richmond has the glossifier. I picked up some black plastidip there on the weekend.

Dipyourcar.com offers the glossifier, but they dont ship it to Canada so not sure if you are able to ship stateside and pick it up. May want to contact the supplier directly to see if it is available stateside close to you.

Not sure Home Depot carries the glossifier.

+1 Powder coat them gloss red. I did my DD 220M's in gloss black and love the difference.
