Blue wheels on white C63

Hey all, I've been shopping wheels and I'm thinking of going in a bit of a different direction with respect to color.
What do you think about blue wheels on a white 2013 C63?

This is the blue I was interested in, maybe even this exact wheel.

So, the design of that wheel will make it look like you're running like a 16 or 17 inch wheel. I like it though.

As for the color scheme, some people go bold or even really bold like hyperion or roswell with his red. It's a matter of personal taste really. Go for it, if you don't like it you can always change the color

Go for it! I find the regular wheel looks are getting boring. That said, I prefer a blue over brushed look, a tad darker also, like this. It's somewhat chameleon-like too with great highlights at night under urban street lighting. JMHO.

I'm not completely sold on the wheels for the exact reason you've stated; I think even 19s will look small.

They will. Think about it, that's like a 2-3 inch facial lip (hehe) on it. So it will end up looking like a 16 or 17

That's not all bad though with a fat tire

You're right. I like the general look, but I think I'd be unhappy buying new wheels that look smaller than the wheels on my GF's Jetta.

Denim blue is an option. It's a bit darker and textured.

See I could rock something like that for a little bit, but your silver, black, polished, aluminum tones to me always are what set off a car. Especially on white.

I think a blue tint coat over a brushed finish (basically a blue version of Roswell's red wheels) would look pretty good. Here are a couple examples. Of the 2 colors you showed, I think the demin color would look better.

I don't like it tbh. Different rim maybe, but not that one.

I think blue wheels on a white car, while ballsy, is very unique and looks great when done right. Below are HRE P101's finished in iLectric Blue and Adv.1 in "Peek-A-Blue".

Red interior corvette with blue rims? I mean...to me it makes sense to have a uniform style throughout, no offense I think this corvette doesn't look great.

Yeah. These are images off google. I was merely trying to show the OP the blue I was talking about and how that would look on a white car. I agree with you though on the interior color. But you can't ever go wrong with red, white, and blue! Lol

My calipers are red so there will be a bit of red, white and blue.
