    We were told at the Bash that regardless of the Official 70th Press Release saying that the Stingray’s 70th Anniversary stripe was Edge Red, on the Stingray is it almost identical to Torch Red, e..g., no clashing.

      I don't know that it will clash, but the edge red stripe on the wheels I saw were darker than torch red. I assume it is the same edge red as used in brake caliber choices, which is darker than torch red. I feel the visualizer photo you posted is correct if you look at the calipers being brighter than the stripe. However, the stripe is much smaller than the calipers and separated visually from the paint by the tires. It will probably look ok, but the more a-n-a-l you are about those things, the more concern you may have.

        I want those wheels on my 22 Hypersonic HTC. I already have the bright red calipers.

            Looks okay to me. Actually the slight difference in color value and chroma, give it a better three dimensional look in my opinion.

              You could always do a edge red caliper to match the wheel, but then the whole wheel /brake package would clash with torch red. You asked for opinions and so if it were mine, I would not put anything on a torch red car that wasn't also a bright red. Some people like adrenaline red interiors in red mist cars, that just doesn't work for me either. So much for opinions.
