VMR 710 in Bright Orange on Lemans Blue 135is?

As the title says thinking about going with VMR 710's in Bright Orange (safety orange) on a Lemans Blue 135is.

What are your thoughts?

The theory is Orange is a complement to Blue so each color will make the other pop.

If you think I'm crazy or you have a better color in mind, lemme know.

Thanks!

I think to pull it off you'd have to be lowered with aggressive offsets.

No way. I love the yellow on blue. A member named "Jive Turkey" on NASIOC had this color setup and it looked great

Def gonna be lowered, not so sure about aggressive offsets, gonna go flush on 8.5 Front and 9.5 Rear.

My only worry with Flo Yellow is how quickly it will fade from the sun.

I've asked around work and this mod doesn't seem to be well received with the 40+ crowd.

I don't know, looks good on an STi but maybe not on a BMW. I think white would look better on blue.

I personally just go with what I like so I say if you like Orange, and Blue go for it. I am getting chrome on my sparkling graphite metallic I know that Chrome is a bit out of style, but I really like it.

VMR does a sick full polished finish that looks better than chrome IMHO. They quoted me an additional $600 for full polish an clear powdercoat.

If you wanna get a cheap idea for how they'd look, look into using plastidip on your current rims and see if you like it. Its 50 bucks and easily removable. dipyourcar.com

Here are a few choices that I think would look good on Blue:

Sunken Treasure & Bronze Burst


Highlighter Yellow & Electric Blue


Really Red, Galaxy Black & Rally Orange

bravo VMR---i'd take a set of each if i could. AW car gives many options.

OP -do what you like, do research and make your choice based on your decisions. At the least talk to people that are going to be around you rather than a forum. People around you will remind you daily whether they like it or not; they might alter your opinion over time through constant feedback. Its slightly too bold for my taste; but a lot of cars pull off wild colors good and if you like it you get a from me.

customizing a car is about individuality and uniqueness-make the car what you want it to be; wouldn't be very custom if everyone shared similar tastes and opinions now would it lol

Thanks! I definitely agree with you. Multiple opinions does help. I'm a fan of bright colors depending on the car it's going on. It'll definitely catch a lot of attention, good & bad.
