guys, give me your thoughts on this wheel treatment

I'm going to be putting 15 inch 1965 Galaxie steel wheels on my '64 Fairlane and was planning on painting them (surprise) bright red but I found these pics of a Falcon on Craigslist and I'm kinda digging the white rims. I will be installing my '64 dog dish flipper caps on the Galaxie rims.

My Fairlane:

I agree. The red wheels (especially 15 inchers) would be too much on a red car; besides, the rear wheel wells are not radiused so a white rim would stand out a bit more Smile
