Help Me Decide what color to Powdercoat my Wheels!!! 01 GSXR1000

Ok guys,

Im getting my GSXR1000 dragbike finished up, now its time to powdercoat the stock wheels to get rid of the funky mismatched colors. Help me choose between Black and Grey. The two attached bikes are the same color/setup as my bike except my tiforce pipe is powdercoated black and my swingarm is underbraced, Stock wheels.

Thanks Motohouston!!!

i got to agree with the gold idea, even though it wasnt an option, lol.

too much black and grey is dull, you need to set it off with something to catch the eye...

while you are at it, get some other parts PC'ed to match. for example rearsets, barends, whatever else you can pull off and re-install without too much effort.
