    My Champion 3 pc. wheels are apart as I am refinishing the lips. Now is my chance for a color change on the centers if I want to. I’m thinking of going gold. Here’s a before and after shot (quick photo shop job). Please vote on your choice if you have an opinion.

    #3 for silver (more OEM in appearance). 360 challenge wheels? In 18 (OEM) or 17 (aftermarket)?

    That Risi 458 is smokin' hot! Love the form on that one (over the later cars with the big side scoops).

    Here's another gold-laced beauty.

    Who CARE’s what anybody else is thinking? Only your OWN taste is important, it is your car so what is fashionable does not matter.

    I'm usually a fan of stock appearances, but REALLY like the gold wheels on a red Ferrari. My suggestion is to have the wheels refinished in gold for that big pimpin' look and buy a set of the Superformance or stock Mondial 16s in silver for the stock appearance when you want them.

    I do have my stock 16s. They were refinished last year and look great.

    Well there you go! Perfect! Gold gets my vote for the refinish. I think it would look great on those wheels.

    For drivability and handling and balance I would recommend using the stock wheels. You can over tire a car and it actually develops more grip than it has the hp to take advantage of. It ends up slowing you down.
