Bike rims?

Does anyone know a good place, online or brick and mortar store, where I can get me some rims for my bike? I'm riding an 03 gixxer 600 and would like to do red rims.

Thoughts, comments, mock me for wanting red?

You know, I haven't really looked around too much yet. I know I want to do a cosmetic upgrade to my bike in the near future and just starting thinking about things like my rims and what not. I figured you guys would at least have a good idea. What's ballpark for some basic rims?

And what's the deal with rim stripes? Or is it strips?

Just take all the hardware off your wheels (ask a member to help if it's too much for you). PM scootertrash and take the naked wheels to him. Pick them up in a couple (3-5) days. Re-install all hardware. New wheels in a week. Not even near "new" prices.
