Goodbye copper, hello....????

Refinishing my HRE's, but dont know what color yet. Working with HRE on another unique color, but these colors are hard to pull off. Saw a brushed gold that looked bonkers, but am unsure at this point because I may wrap the car in another color soon.

Any suggestions, and I'm interested in unique colors mostly.

Decide on what color you want the car to be first, then consider rim colors.

But yeah, to each his own. I usually keep my mouth shut if I cant say something civil though.

Touché but colors go a long ways. HRE's are a good choice however your color selection is a bit off. I'd stick with a basic black, gunmetal, or even red would work. props on being unique though, definitely wouldn't want something that's been done before but with these cars, they all look pretty much a like regardless of what you do, so good luck!

Do root beer. I love that color and it's still rare and works with a variety of body colors. To be honest wasn't really feeling the copper but I assume u got tired of it too which is why you are switching. Good luck w your decision.

This is actually my favorite root beer setup. It looks fantastic on that lambo grey.
