    If this is the wrong place for this post please let me know.....I chose this because I figured the “hot rodders” would have some good ideas....may be a “lame” post, but I am looking to pick your creative minds....wheels can “make” the car sometimes......my ‘42 Maroon Ford Tudor (my first oldie like this)...I have a set of Gennies from Wheel Vintiques (I currently have them painted silver...;)ho-hum)....will be using the original hubcaps...and s/s trim rings.....I would really prefer to paint them a color that “pops” and would look good with the maroon .....looking for your CREATIVE ideas on some color choices. Thanks in advance for any help. 7A42A291-C559-47D8-8086-27D8C643763D.jpeg

    You're right, wheels can make the car and maroon would be a hard color to contrast with. You can't go to wrong with black though.

    I’ve seen red wheels on maroon cars and also tan. Maybe ask one of the photoshop gurus here to post up a few choices for you.

    Yeah I’ve seen red and it works better than you’d think and is brighter than black or off white

    I'd go with black wheels, caps and trim rings, and wide white walls. Great looking car by the way, don't see many '42s...

    I'm building a 30 Sport coupe and painted it 40 Ford Mandarin Maroon with orange wheels, a lot of contrast but it suits me.

    Body color with trim rings & stock hubcaps.
     
  15. Third vote for body color- wide whites- no trim ring with polished 46-49 Merc hub caps
     
  16. Metal flake apple green would "POP" like jiffy-pop
