what color wheels and hubsssss????

19 posts in this topic

gues i gotta bye new rear hub so I am going to just do front to news wheels hubs whole 9 yards.. What color should I get alot of rocks here so I know if I get black will look like hell in 2 months so hows blue hold up say with black hubs? Or what combo should I use as far as color goes?

or should I just go with new wheel and hub for rear and stay silver on silver and save 500 bucks? Thats starting to sound better by the second. Ya think If I do this it will look awful because front will be that dull look and rear be all shiny?

If your worried about scratching the rims just get blue hubs and re-use your silver excels. That solves your weak hub problem, and saves you some money.

I just use a black sharpy marker on my black wheels when they get a scratch.

Yeah I'm anxious to see a set of gold rims on a 06 newer bike.

I only use these for practice, I personally like the look of the silver wheels better. I got a really good deal on these and had to take them.

I really like the silver better too. It seems like everyone has blue or black, but at least the golds look different. They might go better on the the yellow or white yamis though. Thanks.

I put these rims on when I bought the bike in December of 2001. They still look very much like new.

I don't know who makes them, but have you seen some of the bikes at supercross this year, the rims are half anodized blue, and the other half silver. They look pretty cool when they start spining.

About 1100.00 and some change could have gotten them a few bucks cheaper but I used my local dealer i will have them thursday, and get all tire mounts free , he always hooks me up so i supported them. He ordered them from white brothers. The sad thing is he is a Honda , Suzuki dealer not yamaha so I cant buy my bikes from him wish I could because his prices are awesome. He supports me in my business by doing business with me so I support back. I was going to get black wheels but my track i have built behind my house the land grows rocks I swear so they would have looked like hell in 2 months.
