Need opinion or photoshop

I'm taking my wheels in this week to get powdercoated. Blade is red/black. I don't like the stock dark gray. I'm leaning toward white cuz it's different and would help the cagers see the bike at night.

Can anyone whip up a pic of what it would look like with white wheels?

TIA

they don't even look good on your vespa, do they will

Suzukis (blue/white) look good with white rims but I don't think they will suit your blade

Ratter, Will doesn't have a vespa, remember, he never turns up to meetups cause he has no bike
Now keep that between us and the forum, he is a bit touchy about it

LOL, no kidding!

I wish I could post an attachment of a pic I found with white wheels. It looks pretty sweet, actually. I really hate the dark gray, but don't think paying over $200 all said & done to switch to gloss black (like Honda should have done in the first place) would be worth it.

A photoshop would still be appreciated.

I like them in white, but they suck to keep clean.

Honda has made some great looking bikes with white wheels...

Given the state of the truck in the background, I'd say they haven't got a chance!

Re: Need opinion or photoshop

Hi Replica,

Nice job ! I like the look of them in white - but have to agree with previous posters...they'll keep you busy trying to keep them looking that way !

My 929 has got polished rims which looks pretty good, and provided I give them the once over with some autosolve every 3 or 4 weeks they stay in pretty good shape - the spokes and hubs are still the standard black though, and I like that because they don't show the brake dust etc.

Cheers, Spanky.
