    Are you thinking of doing them in red?

    I have just got them done, as i haven't posted very much, i couldn't work out how to comment on my original post. Firstly the pics were too large, and wouldn't attach, so after resizing them i just ran out of time. I know the wheels aren't every ones cup of tea, but i like 'em. They will be a bitch to keep clean though

    Looks good. What color did they used to be?

    The wheels were black on all 2010+ I think. This looks like a 2012.

    Wheels look good! They're brighter than the OEM silver on earlier bikes.

    What brake discs are those? I don't recall seeing silver/ grey carriers before.

    Light coloured wheels look good, as long as you keep 'em clean. WD40 on a rag for filthy wheels, or baby wipes before they get too bad.

    Remember the 80's superbikes with white wheels? Stunning when clean, manky when not!

    The discs were black and painted with silver epoxy caliper aerosol. 2 new Pirelli angel GTs, and new chain/sprockets. You don't realize how bad the old tires were until the first ride with new ones!!

    Good job all around, I've been in two minds about the gold carriers on mine, but I think I'll keep them for now.

    I don't notice the rear tyre so much, but when the front starts to go all pointy, I'd prefer to swap it out early if I can as it tracks all over the place, following grooves, bumps and cambers, and it's frankly unnerving!

    Looks alright to me.
    I'd rather play rugby and loose than play football and win.

    Yeah, I like the lighter color. It matches all the aluminum color across the bottom of the bike, and shows off the 6" wide rim.

    I painted my spare set of wheels gold. Now that they're on the bike, I don't want to switch back to my black street wheels. If I don't, my track tires are going to be toast soon.
