Default Color of "Mazdaspeed" lettering on wheel center caps?

I have a Liquid Silver 2010 MS3 and just had my Mazdaspeed wheels powdercoated. The wheels almost match the smile of the front grill. Before putting on the wheels, I am going to paint my calipers red (too add a little rice). I am seeking input on coloring in the "Mazdaspeed" lettering on the center caps. I'm leaning towards black. However, I'm considering red to match the calipers. I'm also considering blue, as a Mazda Racing tribute. Then there's the option of just leaving them as is. Thoughts and opinion welcome.

The wheels are a little dusty, but I wanted something up for reference.


More pics to come.

well....u need to show a more complete picture of the car, wheel, caliper in the same shit so we can visualize it more properly.

but i ll give u my thoughts, and while i may not look the part, i am fucken super gay like when it comes to coordination of things and such...a real treat.

so.....

silver genpoo, black wheels...and red calipers.

a)1st off the center cap will remain silver??? bad idea....your shit will look like a checkers board.
b) say u do leave it silver color, then black will minimize the circus effect of it all.
c) lets say you come correct and paint the center caps black also.... u then can leave them be as one option
d) or you can then paint the lettering silver and the body of the cap remains black (this is your best option) ..... remember what the theme is.... u cannot have the body be silver ....the wheels be black and invert the process on the center cap...the cap HAS to follow the rules u set forth on your car.
e)paint the cap black and the lettering red.....yeah, it can work...u should photoshop this shit to see for yourself.
f) do not use blue....unless you are going for the fucken superman look, once u introduce blue + red calipers + black wheels + silver car you might as well paint a rainbow on the hood.
g)paint the calipers blue and lettering to match on the BLACK caps


cliffnotes.

1st choice is black center caps with silver lettering
2nd choice is black center caps with red lettering


yeah...im that good.

The center cap was powdercoated with the wheels, the same color. The color is named "black chrome", but it's really just a dark silver. The brightness changes with the angle. Straight on, they look real light colored. At an angle they looker darker.

Red calipers are for srt4's. Paint them black.. look much better only stand out for those looking hard enough..

I need to take some pictures of mine.. but I've got gunmetal wheels also, painted my calipers black looks great.

I agree with lenny, paint the caps black and go with either silver or black mazdaspeed logo..

My idiot next door neighbor has a stock red MS6, and he painted his stock wheels caps red.. It looks fucking retarded driving down the road. clown nose.

Well in that case.. leave them be.. that paint must really fucking change with different angles. that shit looks silver.

My .02 cents are keep it clean.

Wheels same color as cap...MAZDASPEED in red; Muteki small acorn red open-end lug nuts; paint the calipers a blant silver.
