Wheel Wednesday! Anyone have some pics they would like to share...?

I’ll do a change-up for my contribution today... the only color changing leather steering wheel that I know of: the 04 Mystichrome Terminator.

Since it’s Wednesday I’ll post some that I’ve been looking at for my ingot silver 2011. 4 color options… any opinions?

The way I see the wheels and your car:

First off, I like the wheels you have on the car now. They go very well with your color combo! Of the new wheels, black would “flow” with your color combo nicely. Of the blacks, gloss black would be best with shiny silver paint. This to me is the “fastball.”

Ken has a point though... another member here recently posted pictures of bronze wheels he added to his black Shelby... they look HOT! Bronze would be the “curveball.”

I would personally not go for the last set of wheels as they won’t offer enough contrast against your silver paint.

So, shiny black = sexy librarian. Bronze = wet T-shirt beach babe. Decisions/decisions!

Thanks for the detailed thoughts on the color options.
I agree about the silver wheels not working with the silver paint.
Either of the black wheels would work, but like Ken said, everyone’s done that.
I’ve been trying to find pictures of bronze wheels on silver cars and came across a few that look pretty good. I need to spend some time with my old version of photoshop to put these bronze wheels on my car to get a better visual.
Also need to verify that these will clear the GT350 brakes I’ve got on the front.
