Default Wheel colour opinions

I want to get my wheels powder coated as the front for some reason has seen better days but the rear is fine??? I'm thinking an uncovered chain lock used by the previous owner.

I popped in to my local powder coating place the other day and they do some really interesting colours the candies are fantastic.

So, I'm going to keep the colour of the bike as it is for now. But I'm just looking at changing the colour of the wheels.

I'm thinking white.

But It has been suggested gold but I'm not sure.

A mate of mine said to match it to the dark blue stripes on the tank and failings.

What do you guys think?

I'd go for the blue as well.

IMHO I don't think gold would work.

Get someone to Photoshop some colours onto the wheels in your picture

I'd go with polished rims and match the stripe on the tank?

But remember you've got to keep them clean, so make it easy on yourself

Not white. There will be too much white.

Gloss black all over, as shiny as you can get.
Easiest to keep clean.
Speaking from bitter experience, avoid white or light colours or exposed alloy on the rims at all costs.

Polished wheels are a pain in the **** to keep clean.
