Racing stripes? What do you think?

I think my truck needs something on the exterior to make it a little more interesting. I was thinking about racing stripes..........either black or silver ones.........but im not sure if thats what it needs. In Need for speed Carbon, I took a car I had and made it look like the orange on my truck, then added black racing stripes, and it looks pretty bada$$. What do ya'll think about them on my truck?

I think silver would look better, but I don't know that racing strips are what your truck needs...

I don't care much for racing stripes on trucks especially 4x4's but since your a lowered truck it would be okay, but you might wanna check out doing graphics instead.

Well graphics have come along way. It has to be done right and mainly you have to use the right colors, and especially with his color truck.

If your doing stripes I like the silver but with a outline stripe as well.

But if you have black rims then maybe black stripes.

And I think I would have them end before the tip of the hood and not go down the grille.

I don't really like either, but if I had to choose, I'd say the silver. Are you painting the stripes of are they gonna be stick-ons?
