ForgedStar F14 (semi gloss) & NT05"s ...NEED OPINOIS & HELP With DECISIONS! W/pics

ok guys,

SO im very excited because i got my 20x9.5 / 20x11 forgedstar F14 in Semi gloss black & my 275/40/20 and 315/35/20 Nitto NT05's installled yesterday afternoon!! PLESE READ AFTER PICS













soo i really like the look, But i deffentaly feel like it need to be lowered. So i will be getting Pfadt Lowering springs installed on Tues. i feel like this would make it look really adgressive...

NOW...What i really want opinions about is if i should do something to separate th Rim from the tire!! what i mean by that is possibly putting a white pinstipe around the rim, and the pin strip would be Vynle so it could easily be taken off if the pin strip if it was a bad idea...

So let me should you some examaples of what im talking about!!!

These pics are my rims with the exact pinstripe im thinking about (sorry its hard to see) these are teh only pics i can find on my idea.












But what do you think about a white pinstripe, on these rim, on a SW camaro??

Thank you

OMG those wheels are so freaking hot.
OK, now to answer your question... I think you should give the white pin stripe a try. If you do it in vinyl then you'll be safe if you don't like it. Either way... it still looks badass

If it were me I would go with a red pin stripe and with the drop I think it would look sick. My friend did it with his stock black zo6 with black wheels and I love it.

Either way you should stripe it.

Definitely add the white pinstripe, it will break it up and look much better.

Definitely needs a pinstripe. White would look more euro-style, red would look more musclecar. Both would be fine.

A pinstripe along the edge of a wheel can look really good but I believe it is best reserved for people running really thin sidewalls, and @ 110 mm, you are not...

Compare the 2 posted Audi's versus the posted Camaro picture.

+1 on the lowering though, post new pictures when that is done and feel free to prove me wrong on the pinstripe.

After lowering, I would paint the calipers either red, blue or gold to add some pop to the wheel area.

Looks sick. I like it with no stripe around the edge. I think your car lowered with matte black stripes would look killer. Getting jealous right now. Wish my camaro was white.
