You can get a carbon fiber or chrome or any combination vinyl. I think it would look sick.

i do my own vinyl work so it will cost me practically nothing to do this and i have alot of colors including chrome, but i think red would look good since it will be able to be seen

Good choice with red to compliment the calipers. Grafxwerks can do a red on black background too if you wanted another choice.

That wheel makes your rotors look small.
I agree w/ sik, red compliments the caliper.

good point sik, it would accent the caliper nice.

OT: Holy wheel gap, lower that thing!

Since you can cut your own vinyl, just try a couple different combinations, just do it on 1 wheel at a time though, if you don't like it, peal it off and try something different.

I think a black center with red pontiac logo would look sweet.
