Should I "time attack" my wheels?

I kinda really like that idea but I dont want to be cheesy. Will it wash out because my wheels arent black? A red ring might bring out my painted calipers more.

Any opinions?

Nah, my opinion is that you should paint your wheels black and then time attack them. It looks a bit cheesy otherwise...

i don't like the "time attack" look at all, but if you are going to do it i think your rims should be black... that's my 2 cents at least

There's nothing wrong with your wheels, leave them alone.

But doing time attacks on your exhaust rings, might be cool. lol!
