I know you are partial to the red but I think after awhile you might become tired of it? It stands out a little too much for me, drawing attention to the wheels. The wheels on a car should draw you into the car not just looking at the wheels on the car. That has always been my mantra when adding custom wheels. Good luck in whatever you choose.

Maybe try Plasti Dip for now! They have multiple colors and see which you like best before painting! But to me the black looks best!

Red would be cool. If you are going custom make it stand out. My guess is it will look better than the photoshop as the color will be better. Can wait to see what you pick.

With the amount of brake dust these things put off...any color is going to be dingy looking after bout 25 mile of stop and go driving. I have black rims primarily because they show less brake duct and road grime. Just a thought.

i got to be honest, the red looks sharp! But to me it looks more like a red chrome rather than a solid color. I'm not sure whether i would dig a solid VR painted wheel but hey sometimes you cant picture it until you see it... Plastidip migh be the way to go!

Just found this one and I like it.

So look for a poll to happen with the winner of the first wheel and then this one.

Of course this is a wide body which makes it look great.

i voted black as it accents the car nicely but i would do all black with a red ZL-1 logo or the widebody rims in the last pic. not a fan of the red at all on the other rims

I voted for the stock wheels. However I do like the wheels you show on your last picture. Who is the manufacturer and what is the wheel name and size?
