There are some special edition red rims from 2006 for example and others from 2008. Is there a difference in color between the red rims from different years or did they use the same color ? I have a front rim from a 06 and I'm getting a rear from a 2008 both in red and I'm just wondering if they will match or at least be close that you don't notice unless you look very closely?

The red wheels on the 06 aren't really red. They have a sort of maroon/purplish hue to them that is very understated when the wheels are perfectly clean (as in spotless) but as road grime or dust and dirt accumulate the maroon/purple shows through more. The 08 ones don't have this slightly purple hue to them.

Okay, thanks, so.... will it look really off having one from each year range?

It'll be noticeable because the rims on the 08 were a true red, like a blood red, while the rims on the 06 have a noticeable purplish hue to them which becomes more and more pronounced the dirtier the rim gets
