Pinstripe on wheels - yes or no?

My 2014 GT is black with red stripes, and after getting the pic in the below link from Paul at Howey Industries, I am super tempted to get the Forgestar F14's in matte black with a red pinstripe... Need some feedback on this - will the pinstripes be a nice accent, or will be too ricey?

In the end it is your car you make the payment. But to me that's kinda ricey.

Worried it might be something I grow to dislike after a while.

I really love the Shelby razors I put on my car because of the wide lip

They look good! Think I'm gonna change gears and go with the gloss black F14's without the pinstripes. I think the matte wheels would contrast too much with the black car. Time to exercise the credit card...

Almost looks like a throwback to the redline tires of the 1960s.

Since AM does not carry a 20 x 9.5 in this style, I will be forced to order from Howey Industries anyway. So, the pinstripe is still an option... The downside is that the wheels are 4 - 6 weeks out...
