My personal opinion, I'd go all black with the wheels/calipers if it were me. The red just kinda looks out of place. Just my thought, but it's your Compass, so whatever makes you happy! Really like the style of those rims, though!

Nice Compass so far zackman. I have been looking into rims as well. I think I want something black with a chrome lip. They have to be deep as well. But this will be like maybe next summer. I hope to save up enough by then. Keep it up zackman!

Mods: Cargo Net, Chrome Tail light Covers, Chrome Fuel Door, Billet Grille (Upper and lower bumper), Chrome Door Handles, Chrome Hood Vents, Vent Shades, Jeep Mud Flaps, Slushee Floor Mats, Windows Tinted, Kenwood X994 Deck, K&N Cold Air Intake.

Future Mods: Audio System, Cool Future Ideas that I get from the Forum of course.
