Lightbulb Shining Rims on 05 Titanium ZX-10R

Hey all,
Im thinking of polishing my rims to add more character to the ...plain look.

What do you think. I only saw a few pics in the Gallery.

I dunno why but I was also thinking of powercoating them Gold.

ehh, I dunno.


I have polished the rims on 2 of my previous bikes.
I like the deep-width look when you polish the whole rim (minus the inside spoke area).

Maybe this will help. https://www.zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=13202 There are a few guys on here who have a Ti bike with polished lips and I think they look good. My wheels are polished and I like it.
