I would go with black. What's wrong with your rims? If nothing is wrong with them, do you want to sell the rear rim?
Let me know.
Thanks Paul

A ugly bike in 1st place looks better than a pretty bike in last place! Sorry I couldnt resist that one :) I would take performance over looks anyday unless I had tons of money to spend (which I dont LOL) Later,

I just put some new Excels on my 02, due to a minor miscalculation on a 105ft triple, and stock spokes work just fine.
