Powder coat white or red

I want to powder coat my rims either white or red, any opinions what would look best? Does anyone have the ability to photoshop the 2 colors so I could see how it would look. Thank you

I say black. Red will be too much red and white doesn't match; may as well get them yellow or orange.

I plasti dipped the front rim but it didn't come out that well. So I have a general idea of what it's gonna look like but would like to see it completely done

lots of em






you could do them with a silver flake base coat and candy red to match the bike.
white looks good and crisp too.
candy red would be 100 each rim, high gloss white would be 80 each rim.

It is acceptable to add color where there is none. It's awkward to add more color where there is already color.

Gold may look nice, though.
