I'm getting these wheels soon for my red 93:

It comes in white and silver and I'm not sure what to get. I know white would look really distinctive, but I haven't really liked many of the red cars with white wheels that I have seen. I'm leaning towards just getting them in silver and painting my calipers white, but I'd like to hear your opinions on it!

nice wheels man i like those, some people say the white would be ricey, to muc liek a honda boy if u know what i mean, but i like them on a 6 cause u dont see it often, the silver would look phat too, about the white calipers they would be black in like a week dude, think about that ( brake dust) well if u want to be differnt with your 6 get the white, i almost got some the enkei pr05 in white

Yeah, I'm going to get white rims for my car too. Have to wait till summer though. Will probably get the Konig Rated-R in white.
Oh yeah, I have a red MX too.

I'd have to say get them in silver instead of white 4 a red car. Also, DO NOT PAINT YOUR CALIPERS WHITE!!! A friend of mine did that and rice is right they're just an ugly dirty blackish grey after a week. If u paint them anything make 'em either black or red or something.

Don't know about white on a red car. I really like those rims though, but decided on Team Dynamics Motorsport rims myself. I'm going to get them in white with a dark green car and hope that it looks good, if not i suppose I could always have them painted. Anyways, post some pics when you get the rims!

I really think it would look good. Also, it stands out more. Does anyone else like the white on red?

I personally thin kWhite rims on an all red car would look awesome. Perhaps we can get one of th ephotoshop gurus on this web site to change the color on a car and change the color of the rims. Maybe then we can get a good look at it. As always, I'm willing to be the guinea pig on this. So if any of you Photoshop gurus wanna give it a shot. Shoot!

Personally, I don't think white wheels look too tasteful on any car besides a white one; I prefer some of the wheels out that have an anthracite (dark gray) finish. They look great (especially on dark cars) and it's a lot harder to see brake dust on a dark wheel than it is a white one :D One of my favorites is Team Loco's 142; I'll post some screen caps from the TireRack.com website with Mx-6s of various colors with the TL142 wheels for an opinion poll.

Here are the screencaps I promised, stitched into one image:

The wheel size as depicted is 16"; theoretically, you could go up to 18" on a 215/35R18 tire. Tell me whatcha think for each of the colors!
