Powder-Coating Wheels

Has anyone else besides Ackack powder-coated their wheels? Any pictures?

I'd love to do mine in the next few weeks. While I like the gold, I'm leaning towards a metallic blue a few shades darker than the bike itself. Or perhaps a dark metallic gray. Not sure yet.

Any idea would be appreciated as I don't have an artistic or creative cell in my body.

Oh, Strommy are you gonna hate me. Hit my pet peeve. lol "Rim" is slang. They are wheels! A rim is the part of the wheel that hold the tire bead.

Now to be serious. Blue wheels would be the shizzle!

Metallic blue would be great, something like what came on the drz400sm a year or two back.

Since I'm no good at Photoshop, I would suggest that you do a Google image search for "Suzuki blue wheels." While it may not show the GSXS, you will see Gixxers and Busas, which might give you some idea.

I'm rather partial to the Yamaha MT-0X series blue.
