Anyone thought about doing this...

I'm thinking of having my rims powder coated neon green (or whatever color is that) like the Yamaha FZ10. I already have the matte gray, so it might look exactly like this, which I really like.



What do you guys think?

When and if I get one I have already planned out a new rim color. Someone has already done white on a red r3 that looks super. So yea go for it.

Not sure where on the internet I pulled this image from, so if it's someone on this forum I apologize for not giving the credit where it's due...
...but with my own red R3, I'm thinking these gold wheels look simply amazing. Granted, these are clearly aftermarket wheels but I feel powder coating my black rims to this finish will still look pretty tight.

Awhile before Yamaha started releasing the FZ armor grey/night fluro colors, one of the members did their wheels in that color. Its on glossy black, but its still similar.

Oh my! That looks great. I like it. Looks like that'll be my next mod. Thanks for sharing the pic.

I'd be careful with that mod. As good as it looks, it is quite a distinct mod. I'd probably go for a more neutral color if I were to do this.

I like the look. Just be aware of the fact that your black wheels 'look' clean. These yellow or white wheels will need constant care and cleaning or they'll look terrible.

I think the new FZ10 is ugly, but not because of the wheels. The neon is cool. I think it could look good if done right. That neon is a hard color to nail. I had a neon jacket the looked dorky, but the neon on Valentino Rossi is sick.

FWIW the white wheels and gold wheels on the red look sweet.

Oh, and I think red wheels on the matte grey would look the ****.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.

That neon paint looks awesome for some tires. I have a friend who painted his R6 that color, and it looks pretty awesome imo. Adding some black stickers to it will make it work if you feel it looks like you went over it with a highlighter.

Well finally found a company that would do both rims for $120.00 (I need to provide the paint).

How easy/hard is it to remove both rims from the bike?
