I vote yellow. There is a blacked out C7 in town with them and that thing just catches the eye.

I vote yellow from the choices you provided..... However Jet stream blue would look great and better than any color imo....

I love my red, but yellow looks great too. They both stand out. Get what you think will go with your taste.

Here is my black Z/51 with black rims & black calipers.
It is all in what you like -they sort of "hide" in black and will jump out in red or yellow.

My vote would be red. Hard to go wrong with that color.

Best looking car with black wheels, ever. I'm generally a chrome wheels guy, but with the mix of red interior, calipers, that z06 emblem on the side, and the subtle red accent on the side piece, it's a gorgeous look.

Well done.

I think red sets off the wheels and makes for a beautiful contrast with the car. Great look!

if you're **** and want to always keep your car looking great stay away from black. it's a full time job. had a black c6 and it looked great when clean but I became obsessed with swirls and it was a full time job. never again no matter how great a clean black vette looks.
