    I'm thinking about either painting them red (to match the graphics on the bike), white (my jacket and helmet are red/white/black), or bronze (just because I've got bronze wheels on my CRX, and they look awesome)...

    I've also got some red 'rim-tape' stripes that I haven't decided if I should put on instead of painting them...

    opinions?

    i think all three of the colors would be sick, but i would say more the red stripe than anything.

    i like the black and red look. i dunno how solid red wheels would look though. maybe a red stripe or just the spokes red or something.

    if it were me id keep em black.

    the black/bronze looks sick too, but its kinda played out imo

    How about painting them white and putting some black "rim tape" on them?

    Keep em black, put the red rim tape on them... Is that an r6 or r1? Can't really tell in the pics. I miss my r6. Must get new one...

    remove all decals, paint rims bronze. itll match the crx, and look hot. that black bike looks hot with the bronze wheels.

    anodized red, like someone else mentioned, would be badass.

    [​IMG] white rims on a bike are so hard to keep clean

    rim tape FTW!!! DON'T do white wheels. The amount of brake dust you'll accumulate on them will make you wish you'd left them black. I know. I've had both. And bike brake dust doesn't come off as easily as on car wheels. You'll spend days cleaning them. It's a pain.

    That kawi does look sick, but zx12r's are way too heavy to have much fun on.
