    I've always liked the red-line tires of the Muscle Car era. I've seem some wheels that mimic that look with a thin red paint on the rim of the wheel.

    (In the next paragraph I will be referencing a part of the car wheel. As I understand it, a wheel has a hub, spokes or face, a barrel, and a rim. I will be referencing the area near the rim of the wheel. In other words, the rim is not the entire wheel, just a portion of the wheel. Sorry for all that.)

    My thought: After close inspection of the stock Hellcat Black wheel, there is about 1/4" smooth surface at the rim of the wheel. I was thinking about getting that rim covered with a pin stripe of red vinyl.

    Your opinions?
    Looks like I'm trying too hard.
    Maybe, let's see.
    Definitely.
    No, you're too offended by telling you that your rims are actually wheels.

    I want to have a red stripe powder coated onto the rims in a very similar fashion. I have a friend that has his rims done and it looks amazing. :)

    Wow! Looks better than I thought it would.
    It seems to me that those huge red Brembos are begging for the red line look.
    Now, IMO, I'm sure the red line look would be great on Black, White, and Graphite. Maybe the others too (not so much Sublime, IMO)

    Yeah, I have the stock chrome rims from my Charger still in my garage and thought I might keep them for winter driving but chrome rims just don't look right with all the black accents on the car.

    I'd go with black.
    Green and Black is an awesome color combo on cars. Totally, in your face!

    If I had a sublime car, I would have switched out the Brembos for the matching green ones and possibly considered a green stripe on the wheels. That would look good!!

    I believe they sell the stripe for the wheels in multiple colors that stick on. Tapeworks is another vendor I used on the corvette: Rimstripes by Tapeworks
