Looking for a red that matches the sport brakes, for my new lounge that's soon to receive sport wheels.

Any suggestions on what aftermarket product matches best?

Get your self a PMS color match booklet to match the red color. Maybe if I have one I'll match it for you.

Nothing in the pantone booklet matches the color. 185C was close. The red/orange outlined, sport center wheel cap matches the color, pretty close. I would think, any auto supply store, would carry a red high temp brake paint.

Thanks-- I figured a standard red would look good, but was thinking the wheels had a little more orange-red than that.

Make sure you prep them properly or they will flake in a matter of months. I was about to do it, but not worth the time.

Lorvar, after a few days of looking at it, you're right. Not worth the time. If they were a dark rust brown like on my other car, that may be different.

The more I look at the silver on the gray car, the better it looks to me. I might even de-red the new sport wheels.
