LMB With Tii Wheels? - Opinions

Hi all

Was playing with photoshop to see what a Le Man Blue coupe would loook like with the Tii rims. What you all think? (Please excuse my poor photoshop skills). PS, this isn't my car, thanks to another forum member for the pic!

The perspective is a bit off. The fronts look to be 20" (or even 21") or so, and the backs 19"+. IMO, they look way too big for this car, but I think the Tii wheels would lke good in 18" though on that blue.

Interesting your comments about the perspective. I've only overlaid the rims, not changing the tyres at all, ensuring that I covered all traces of silver rim (original photo) with the new Tii rim. (also why there are glimpses of silver)

I'm a bit worried it's all too dark. Think I actually prefer the 261M rims...

The original image you used for the rims might have been taken dark so they might be more silver in real life than that dark... When you photoshop, you also nee to shop the lighting too.
