went a different route with the wheels...

After over a month of waiting, i finally got my wheels back from being repainted. I originally had matte black wheels that were starting to get a little beat up, so i went with a gloss black with red accents. Overall the pain work itself is god, but I could be happier with the red. Up close, and in certain lights i can see that it could stand to be a couple of shades deeper. I'm very anal about small details in my car and now it looks as if i have three different shades of red(graphics, calipers, wheels) Just don't wanna go through the hastle again of getting the work re done.

here are some pics. What do you guys think? Am I nitpicking?

Are your graphics Vinyl or they painted on? If they are Vinyl I would remove them and then have them painted on the same color as the red on your wheels.

the graphics are vinyl from bigworm. I'd hate to get rid of them, but that is an excellent idea...

Huh, I didn't notice at first look, but now sticks out like a sore thumb. Sure you want to be out driving that with that kind of look?....

Just kidding, they look fine, good job.
