Default Torch Red Photo Request

I know there are a lot of torch reds out there but I can't seem to find some pictures of this exact one. Any help is greatly appreciated.

-2LT Z51 Torch Red Coupe
-Standard Silver Z51 Wheels
-Red Painted Brake Calipers
-Carbon Flash Mirrors/Spoiler

Yea haha, I think this build is the one though. I thought black wheels would look good but I've had gray/black wheels in the past and I think silver wheels would look better.

I just put silver HREs on my TR Z51 2LT. Would that help you? I like it a lot!

With the CF hood vents, deck vents, ect, the Black wheels really tie in well. Then add CF splitter and skirts and it POPS. However, I did see the new Pearl Nickel Aluminum wheels in person on the new Z06 and they were stunning. Either way, the TR serves this car very well:

Idk call me weird but I like to know when my wheels are dirty. Black wheels also show damage a lot more than silver wheels do. It's like the black wheels just make it to much black for my liking.

Sometimes depends on the color choice. Dark exterior color, I prefer Chrome/Silver. Lighter colors, Black can work well. Here was my last car, loved the Chrome Spyders...

I used to hate the look of black wheel but the contrast has grown on me actually ordering a shark gray Z51 with the black rims.

There was one on cars.com exactly like this last week. It may still be there. Mine has all on your list except cf mirrors/spoiler. That combo looked kinda weird imo.

I found it. It's a 3lt but that shouldn't matter for visual purposes.
