I have mine done red.......... and well if its to keep them looking nice the white will be by far worse man. But from the looks of it you dont mind spending the time to keep your ride clean so I think the white looks good

I had white rims on my old CBR and they would get dirty when you looked at them wrong. I would wipe them down just about every day to keep up with them. If you let them go a week or two you had a lot of work to do. But they did look good.
