I'm really digging that white stripe on the gray paint. Now red car, black stripes all the way. I guess I may be partial to the white stripping. Whistle, 😜

That's cool. Different strokes for different folks. I love how my color combo just screams out, look at me, love me. Lol. Love how the white pops off of colors like blue, black, red, gray.

Black stripes are nice but just blends into the darker colors and gets lost in the sauce. Don't really see them and for me I love the fact the white stripping screams out attention on the darker colors. :thumbup:

You could always try what I did when torn between color choices for your stripes. Plasti Dip. Here's what I started with:

First, I went with the standard matte black:

Later I thought I might like silver better:

Once I drove around for awhile with each color individually, I made my decision and applied vinyl. It was made even easier by taking my time measuring the initial application of Plasti Dip for the centerline. Here's the end result:

It's funny you mention wheels as being the rim and tire together.
For whatever reason it appears that wheels refer to rims these days.
I grew up with that same understanding...rims, tires and together they're wheels.
I'll have to google it.

OH yeah...I pefer the end result myself!

EDIT: The wheel is what many refer to as the rim and does not include the tire. The rim is the "outer edge of a wheel, holding the tire". But most refer to the wheel as a rim.

A) Silver Metallic is a killer stripe color... so much better than a non metallic IMO.


B) A wheel is the same as a rim. A tire is a tire. An axle is an axle. lol


C) I personally think matching the wheels (or RIMS) to your stripes is an excellent look... which is why I will be getting hyper silver wheels soon.

Tires are tires, not wheels , I always think that a wheel is the rim, not the tire. The tire is separate from the wheel (aka rims). The wheel is what holds on the tire. The wheel is the house that the tire lives on.

Ba ha ha ha ha.

...ok...
the tire goes on the rim,
together it is called a wheel.

a tire is not a wheel.
a rim is not a wheel.

You better contact tirerack.com and every other tire/wheel seller and let them know they are calling their products by the wrong name lol

Find the dude that told you what a "wheel" is and never listen to him again

Having the same body color of Sterling grey, I'd say go with white and Silver rims -- RTR Silver Mustang Wheel & Pirelli Tire Kit - 19x9.5 KIT 11068 (05-14 GT, V6) - Free Shipping // although you could go red and grey, lot of contrast and plenty of attention. At the end of they day, do what you want with your car. Sterling on Dark grey gloss stripes is always a classic favorite --
