Default RED RIMS REFINISH: yes or no?

I am planning to refinish my R112s this spring. I would love your input about going red route.
Please, see attached quick set up images and chime in...

Please have in mind that i will be mounting RED JCW BBK calipers, I have few red stickers, red piping on seat covers and red 3BALL shifter knob. Everything else on the car is pretty much two-tone...

Thanks!

my two cents:* if you go w/ the red rims, you need red side-view mirrors too.


*but what do I know?

i think it would look killer if it was a maroon or copper instead of straight red

Sorry, not a fan. Goin' red won't be a good boredom therapy.

That color is way too loud. I think my nose is bleeding now.

Thanks for the input everybody and for waking me up!
Decided to hold off with refinish till September (since these are "new to me" winter rubber rims). By then, I will know if it is going to be "white silver" (body color) or some kind of black (finish)...

I don't like the brightness of the ones in the p chop. If they're a bit more subtle, I think that could be nice
