Default Red Rims on white?

What does everyone think about putting red rims on my whit RA? I haven't seen any out there to compare and I really like the idea of red on white.

Thinking of something like these, but more of a dark red/maroon color.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be great!

Is your car lowered?
Also, what wheels and specs do you plan on getting?
Do you have any CF bits?

Staggered bright red Lexani 3 spokes with mad wheel gap might not looks so good. :/

If you want an idea of what it'll look like go to TireRack.com. Check the red OZ Alledderita with "View on vehicle"

Eh, I'm thinking no because the Ralliart has a large black nose compared to the Bimmer pictured, and that could throw it off, especially if you still have the chrome trim. If you plastidip or vinyl wrap the chrome trim on the nose, maybe.

maybe if you did it all right.. like vinyl wrap ur front trim in red, but do your side trim in plasti.. or something... otherwise with the large amount of black on white itd look just too busy... but i could be wrong

Wow thanks for all replies! The chrome ring, window trim and emblem are all plasti dipped. The plan is to lower it, keep the same size wheels and put red vinyl "racing" strips over the front left wheel. I have a pitcure of an WW Evo with the same thing, just black rims.

careful when putting vinyl on rims, they have a tendency to get torn up when they're on the wheel, from what I've seen anyway.

Oh no, not vinyl on the rims. I meant on the actual body, above the right wheel.
