Racing/fender/panel stripe color?

So I've got most of the cosmetic looks of my car done but want to add a bit more. I'm stuck on a color choice though I love the looks of silver on my true blue mustang but also wondered about the looks of red stripes on a dark blue mustang. I don't want it to be all weird looking so should I stick with getting silver?

IMO silver would look way better than red.

Guess I'd have to ask on thoughts about which looks better with smoked headlights and taillights. Or just show a picture of where my car is at ha

If you want to be noticed get the race red.
If you want to be subtle get the silver.
