Change object color in viewport?

Anyway of changing an object’s color in the viewport without dealing with materials? Can’t seem to find anything on it.

in cycles go to the material panel sub panel setting and change the color

happy cl

Thanks. Isnt this a material though? I’m importing geometry into Blender from Max and object color is sometimes hard to read (black) so instead of adding a material I would like to change the wire/object color. I know I can do this in Max beforehand but I am wondering if there is a way to change the wire object color in Blender without affecting material since I am exporting to other software anyway…
