I don't like the overall look, but the wheels look sharp with red rings on them. Reminds one of the 78 Corvette pacecar.

Sorry, don't like the overall look as well. Perhaps if they were painted silver, but the black does not blend well with the car. You asked

Thanks. Opinions I respect, comments like "Honda" I don't especially since colour matched rims are in style on very high end cars.

Currently they are polished, yet the clear coat has failed and they need to be refinished. I'm growing bored of the polished look, so I wanted to try something new.

This is the other look being considered:

I like what you're trying to do but it looks like it popped off my screen when i was playing need for speed! something about it just doesn't stick. the paint scheme on the car is kinda slick but the wheels are just on their own, not enough to bring it all together into one good look. but you are right, lots of manufacturers and aftermarket companies are going to the painted wheels.

Nah, I like the red out rims better than the red centers, at least with that paint scheme. It ties it closer to the red line visual. Does it look good in red around silver?

The first pic looks better than the second. It would probably look best, I would think, if you just stuck with the wheel being one color.

That's the look I'm going for! :D Kinda, I would like something more edge-y, yet understand most Mercedes owners will not like it.

I haven't found a good painted wheel combo to go with the silver car, usually the lip is matched to the car colour, yet black lips are boring, and silver would be close to the polished look I already have.
