Rim Color for GSXR 1000 K1?

This is my baby. I'm going to have both rims powder coated as one of my Winter projects.



I'm thinking either white or blue, but probably there are other colors that would look good and I haven't think of. Any suggestion/opinion will be appreciated.

If you have any picture of yours with any other color, I would really like to see it to get an idea of how it looks.

I powder coated these for a customer a couple weeks ago. I like the white.

Re: Rim Color for GSXR 1000 K1?

So far I agree with all that you are saying so far. White, blue and black are the top 3 pics to me.
I'm also considering Oldfart's suggestions though. I really like the last picture.

Why not do all three colors blue lip, white rim, black spokes. etc...your own configuration. I have my rims polished and the spokes are anodized blue.

Re: Rim Color for GSXR 1000 K1?

I've got a project we're working on right now. 4 different colors of powder overlayed in a pattern on some wheels then powder cleared. It's either going to be amazing or an abortion.

Should be done by Saturday.

I like how it matches the forks and exhaust pipe. Didn't think about it before. Another option to consider.
