  • Red Mist & Rims

    What finish on aftermarket rims does everyone think would look best combined with the new Red Mist color? I'm not asking about make and model rims, but what finish such as brushed silver, matte black, black chrome, etc.

      Personally, I am old school and have always preferred either chrome or the polished aluminum ...of course you need to make the call that suits your personal tastes. What I like and what you like might be two completely different wheel choices. For me to see totally all black rims still reminds of back in the ole days where I only used black rims for my winter tires.

        I was specifically eyeing the Vossen HF-3 rims. They are very good looking rims without spending 10k on them and they come with many custom finishes.

          Personal taste. I don't like black rims - from more than a few feet away they just disappear and it looks like your car has 4 black holes. Silver or natural alloy, or possibly something like Forgeline's Black Ice (sort of a black chrome).

            Chrome for me!

            My C6 Z51 Coupe (Monterey Red) and C7 Grand Sport (Long Beach Red) both have chrome wheels. My future C8 Z06 (Red Mist) will also get chrome wheels. Hopefully GM will make them available with the Z06.

              From MRR’s “custom finishes” URL, can one go wrong with any one of these?

              https://www.mrrwheels.com/pages/sets/72157658759664062

              As to matching Red Mist, I would chose Matte Bronze, but there are 100 right answers...

                John, I have to admit that they are pretty awesome looking wheels and I think that they would look super on Red Mist C8 for sure.

                  Black rims look fanastic with many colors and I was originally going to go with that for my build, but I changed my mind for the very reason you stated. If I would have seen how beautiful this car looks in white with red rims, I would have changed my order long time ago. Black rims look better with lighter colors I think. You need more contrast, which is why I'm leanng towards silver/chrome though grahite or bronze may also look great.

                    I also like the bronze idea. Although for Red Mist I'd probably go with a brushed silver, or something with grey pockets and machined face, similar to the Corvette tridents but in one of the unique after market designs.
                    '64 Silver Grey Coupe (custom paint)- still our favorite
                    '77 Black L82 / 4SPD
                    '78 Silver Anniversary L82 / 4SPD
                    '13 White/Blue Diamond 427 60th roadster - favorite late model
                    '14 Black Z51 Coupe
                    '15 Shark Grey Z51 Coupe
                    '20 ... Zeus Bronze Coupe, 2LT, GT2 seats, Natural two tone, Body color accents, Pewter wheels

                      I am going thru same dilemma now, we decided on a color change from ZB to RM. your spec is very similar to mine except mine is a HTC.

                        When Red Mist is revealed not long from now, big smiles will be forthcoming. As to which hundreds of different wheels and their colors will look great on it, the Red Mist’s reveal is only going to make that decision harder.

                          I thought it was tough with ZB, figured RM would be easier since more colors work with it. I think I've got it narrowed down, it will be beautiful 😊

                              I have Satin Black Vossen Evo 5 on my car...... Satin Black would look great on your car IMO.

                              The Finish IS not the same on full forged vs.... Hybrid forged/Flow Forged etc..... it is just not the same...... look for yourself before you purchase.

                              You can send me a PM and I will send you many pics

                              Best on Luck... you will LOVE your car with any wheels you choose!
