Default Painted wheel color?

Changing wheels on my PT to steel wheels. Can't make up my mind on the right wheel color.
My cruiser is Inferno Red Clearcoat and I can't decide between black wheels or inferno red wheels. I plan on chrome beauty rings and baby moons.

If your going retro. Body color with pinstriped instead of chrome rings.

I'm trying to go retro. Using Pteazer roll pan, cowl induction hood, bumperette with full grille. Removing the spoiler and changing to the steel wheels.
I hadn't thought of the pinstriping on the wheels. Great idea.

i realize this is an old thread, but where does one get colored steel wheels? i've got the black hubcaps and if i cold get inferno red steels, i think would complete the look i'm after.

i suppose i cold find a place to media blast and either paint or powder coat the wheels i have. just a matter of finding someone to do it.

in chicagoland, everybody loves "The Powder Pro" in Woodstock IL, as they do phenomenal work. I don't know how far you're willing to travel though. he's 64.2 miles from Oak Creek.

here's his rim gallery, it's 15 pages deep. he is THE expert: The Powder Pro: PHOTO GALLERY Wheels
here's more in a sponsor feedback gallery of another forum i use: http://www.chitownracing.com/forums/...king-His-Magic.....
