New Wheels Color: Red or Orange?

Hello all,

I am thinking of changing up my wheel color till my new rims come in. They will be here in a 2 months. I was thinking orange but after seen the IND m3 with red TE37, i am thinking red now. Anyways what is your opinion. My wheels are the Avant Garde 310.
My car:

One on the right.

RED?

ORANGE?

Twilight Blue.

On white it will look so amazing.

I realize its not one of your options, but throwing it out there.

EDIT:

I didnt notice the blue ones on the middle e90, they are awesome looking as I thought. But dont copy your friend.

go for red, but something closer to burgundy, not firetruck red like those Volks.

Those blue ones are pretty sick though! But if they are like your firends, I agree on not copying. Tough call IMO

Agreed on the darker red, that would look different. What color is your interior? If it's coral red, maybe the bright red would look better. If it isn't, then I'd go for something darker.

The red wheels are super ugly, but I think orange would be even worse.

I thought the bright wheels was something that some vendors do on their show cars to make people look. That dosen't make it cool.
