Wheel colour

Hi all,

Has anybody experimented with different wheel colours on the F3? Primarily a red/silver bike?

My wheels have not worn the last 21,000km too well (it gets ridden in any and all weather) and the finish just doesn't look too sharp any more. I've been considering having them re-done at some point but I'm always one to think if I'm going to do so I wouldn't want to leave them black as it gives me the opportuntiy to try something different.

That said, I've also not seen many examples of different colours and wonder what would look good with the bike. Can anybody provide any examples, pictures (I've not found much) or edits of different colours on here? Or if anyone has been through this be great to see input.



Cheers!

Gold wheels make any MV faster, but I think the silver 1st Gen F4 wheel color would suit your bike nicely.

Agree, especially with the F3's spoke design. This pic gives a fair impression:

Cant go wrong with gold wheels, under a red/silver F3.
Although, Nigelrb's silver wheel colors will fit very good aswell.

I just put gold on my RC (photos in the picture thread). I pretty much always do gold on my bikes. That silver does look really good though.

I decided to skip on the painting and just put on red rim tape.
