    A while back I decided on getting black wheels for my Fiesta, however, it's becoming quite the norm among Fiesta owners.

    I'm humoring the idea of a coloured wheel, though I'm not entirely sure how I feel about them.

    What do you guys think? Does this seems stupid and childish?


    I got the idea from the ICE 9 FiST

    I like my matte black 16x7 Rota slipstreams. I might repaint my stock wheels.

    I like black rims, don't get me wrong, I was just curious to see what colour would look like, but I don't know how I feel, not sure if I like it or not ...

    I'm all about doing what you like, but green on a red car is a bit too seasonal...

    It's the only colour that goes well without clashing super hard!

    I still prefer black, but matte red might look pretty cool. I dig the monochromes...

    That would be my last choice. Color choice is very subjective. I personally went with the Halloween theme: Molten Orange and Matte Black! If you like it, go for it. I do like the 2 spoke orange thing on the blue/black wheels. I might try that.

    If I were to change the color or my wheels I would just have them powdercoated flat grey or black, colors may be in vogue right now but my preference is something more functional looking. I may go with a set of Rota wheels when I begin autocrossing, and use the stock wheels for snow tires. But if I were to do that, both sets of wheels would be flt black.

    I love colored wheels, but green on red isn't my favorite combo.

    Not childish, but colored wheels are a fad, or thing of the day. I tend to think long term, like what will it look like it 10 years. Many don't seem to plan to keep their cars that long, but I expect this to be the last new car I buy.

    If you like it, do it. Enjoy your car however you want. It's not permanent.

    Kinda reminds me of Halloween candy :)

    My buddy with a Genesis changed his wheel color monthly using Plastidip. Copper, black, yellow...
    BTW, you don't have to mask off the tires. It rubs right off....

    Personally, I like the 1/4 pie cut contrasting paint. I plan on doing that in Orange with the matte gray Sparcos...

    I'm having fun with my winter wheels. I'll keep the grey for summer. fiesta.jpg

    Opposite the OP colors. Not subtle, is it?

    I'm an art teacher so I use my winter setup as a good way to teach complementary colors. Might as well have fun with it.

    Absolutely! If you like it, that's what really matters.

    It definitely looks a lot better with more green and less orange/red ...

    I'm a fan of black and colored, I debating orange or green with my performance blue. But these are some previous cars[​IMG][​IMG]
