Red or Blue with gemini wheels

I am looking to replace my original model s with a y due to the towing capability. I have all my options and wants I would like but can't decide which looks better with the silver gemini wheels. While I do love the induction, the dumb towing restriction isn't something I want to get into because I am looking to tow a small travel trailer with the Y.

The red for sure looks much better with the black induction and if it wasn't for the towing need, I would have gotten that in a heartbeat. But I am concerned the silver gemini wheels look odd on the red compared with all the other black trim. Blue always looks good in silver, I just don't know if the red would look odd.

Bonus question, black/white interior with the red/blue and gemini wheels? a hell yea or hell no?

A little late in the day to join this discussion. Even so here I go: I have a red Y on order with white interior and Gemini wheels. I am not a fan of black wheels but I agree that for Turbine type wheels, silver would not be right regardless of body colour.

Checkout the red model 3 with the silver sport wheels - lovely
or the best looking car since day one, the MS. In red with it's silver wheels - gorgeous! Having said that, if I could have my Y in Elon's Multi Multi Coat deep crimson, I'd be happy with any wheels.

The S blue, in my, just short of humble, opinion, looks much nicer than the Y blue. I am a reasonably empathetic guy and totally get the people who confirm that I am. But grey M3s and MYs! Please! Oh sorry, it's not a miserable afternoon in Skegness grey, It's a sparkling midnight silver!
