Show me your wheel rim colour!

Hi Folks as my 500f resto gets closer to the paint stage I have began to wonder if I should change the colour of my steel rims. The car is being painted the same red it is in the photo below but I will be adding the white wall inserts. I’d appreciate it if you could post a photo of the colour you painted your rims for ideas. Thanks!Click image for larger version

I wouldn't change anything. You have awsome combination of colors.

They look great!
I like the white wheels but I don’t know if it’s overkill once you add the white wall to the tyres too

You could always apply liberal amounts of black paint like some guy did in the thread I posted earlier 😢

A friend of mine painted his wheels white instead of using the white wall tyres. Looks good with the dark blue paint.

Re: Show me your wheel rim colour!

I changed mine from silver to body colour; much nicer in my opinion

Re: Show me your wheel rim colour!

I reckon car body colour is the one to go for.

While Walls look good if there's some contrast between white wall and body / rim colour.
