How to Choose a New Paint Color for Your Car

How to Choose a New Paint Color for Your Car

Choosing a new paint color is not as simple as just deciding between blue or red. There are many shades of each color available to choose from, and there are many other factors to consider as you decide on the new paint color for your car. 

Whatever paint color you decide on, 3rd Kind Customz can give you the custom auto paint job that you have always dreamed of. Here are some tips to help you choose a new paint color for your car.

Safety Considerations

Some statistics show that red cars are involved in more accidents and are pulled over more often by the police. But statistics are just statistics, and don't necessarily prove that red is somehow a "dangerous" color. You might also want to keep in mind that, at night, white and silver are more visible, while darker colors will be harder to see. 

Consider Paint Additives

Tiny metallic flakes in paint can add a distinctive shine to your vehicle and make it stand out on the road. Pearlescent paint additives can give a truly unique look to your vehicle, making it appear different shades of color from different angles.

When deciding on a paint color for your car, consider your driving environment. Dirt and mud will show up very easily on a white paint job, so it may not be the best choice for off-road drivers.

Check Out Paint Options at Dealerships

If you see a paint job at a dealership that you like, find out the paint code and bring it to us. This will make it very easy to find exactly the paint you are looking for. You can also browse paint catalogs for ideas and paint codes.

Consider Your Driving Environment

Dirt and mud will show up very easily on a white paint job, so it may not be the best choice for off-road drivers. Dark colors will attract a lot of sunlight and may get hotter when they sit outside. Lighter colors will be easier to keep cool in warm environments.

Stand Out? Blend In?

Some of the most popular car colors are silver, red and blue. Sports cars will tend to have flashier colors, while sedans and SUVs will usually be neutral or metallic. Black and metallic colors tend to be popular with luxury vehicles. But you can always choose to stand out with your custom auto paint and make your vehicle's color is reflective of your personality.
