If you are concerned about it, go to the local dealer and look at the tires on other LS Camaros. It could just be the kind of tire shine you are using or how you apply it.

To the original post, the red trim rings on the LS wheels look good. Red windshield wipers is a bad idea though.

Try a different tire dressing. I have used some that are worthless, and some that really shine. The best I found was made by Turtle Wax, but that particular one was discontinued. Too bad. Worked great, no much mess and lasted for a week or more.

I had black stripes originally but I had the dealer take them out... they took too much from the car being red. Now that I took it out, the red really pops out. But I do like the black trim here and there.
