Blue or Gold Rims... Vote please!

45 posts in this topic

Blue<font color="navy"> rims would look very tacky on a 426 unless you also had the <font color="orange">orange<font color="navy"> plastic kit. <font color="gold">Gold<font color="navy"> rims on the other hand would look excellent on a stock 426. :)

What color rims looks best on any bike is a matter of personal taste. I've seen both blue and gold on 426's and lean toward the gold because blue rims are just TOO much blue for me.

A good friend of mine just argued with me about which color Excel rim looks the best.

As I realize this is sorta childish please give me your "personal opinion" to the best color rim you like. I'm curious to see what you guys say.

I personally like the Gold Excel rims on the 426's.

If you have a pics don't hesitate to post it.

Thanx

While it might not be a matter of life or death, most riders DO care about their bike's appearance. So yeah, a lot of people give a ****.

I totally agree Boit.

Gold will look much better than Blue!

I think the gold rims deliver a smoother ride and the blue rims give more distance on jumps. No one would change their rims just because of color -would they?

I've heard that sky blue rims with pink stripes are good for enduros, because they allow for better time keeping. :)
