HRE Wheels, painted red or polished?

I just put a set of HRE 560R's on order and have been debating whether to paint the centers red to match the car or polished. You can google HRE Wheels to see them. Here is a pic of my car. Any idea's?

In general, don't go with matching colored wheels (if the car is a bright color). Makes the car look a bit cartoonish, IMO. Also, if you ever want to put the wheels on another car (or if you want to sell the wheels), it'll be a lot easier to do so if they're a neutral color.

Like the color match on the wheels, but on this car maybe, maybe not, but just my .02 i wouldn't have polished as an option, if you leave them neutral go to some type of satin or brushed finish, and leave the lips polished.. much cleaner look than all polished in this case for sure hope that helps

I like HRE wheels done in black centers and polished lips. Matching the cars color, I feel you lose something when you look at it?
my 2 cents

Black. Polished looks goofy.

Of your two choices, I said polished over red initially, but if there are other choices, then I would say satin with polished rims.

Satin black centers w Polished lip gets my vote. If you go all polished no one will be able to see the rest of your car!
