Wheel color...bad idea?

Me and Alex are thinkin, when I get new tires, we swap rims.








His being silver and red...getting the silver rims, would definitly match up well, but might look a little too monotonous. And on mine, although match it well on mine everything being a flat color, also look too monotonous.

Anybody got pics of either bike with the rims swapped? Of course, Brutale with darker rims, and red/silver F4 with silver rims?

Don't feel like making an afternoon of swapping and muscling rims around only to find out, it might not look so good...or, it might look really good on one bike, but not the other, etc....

If nobody can find one...anybody with some good P-Shopping skills?

My Opinion: You are 2 consenting adults... it's not like swapping wives, so just do it for the hell of it and see how you like it, it shouldn't take that long...

just remember to take some pictures when you have the wives swapped, er, I meant wheels.

My F4 had silver painted wheels, I think it makes the bike much brighter.... I like silver wheels

The 910 R will give you some idea of black wheels on Brutale

If you take a closer look at the F4 rims...his are like a flat dark bronze....we're wondering if his rims would look better on my bike than mine do, and vice versa for his....
