Thinking of wheel stripes

I'm thinking about doing wheel stripes. I've searched and saw quite a few have done it. Wondering what color would look good. I'm trying to decide between red, gold or silver. What are your opinions? I'd like to see some photos of yours also please. ALSO, CAN ANYONE PHOTOSHOP THE DIFFERENT COLORS ONTO MY WHEELS IN MY PHOTO? THAT WOULD BE A GREAT HELP. Thanks for any thoughts.

Gold is pimp. If you did gold, you would have to get matching handle bars and a "grill"...

This is what 3/16" wide red paint looks like.

The side panel painted looks sweet, don't do wheel stripes man, that will completely kill the clean look of your bike.

I was thinking the same thing about the clean look. I was hoping to see some pics or a photoshop to help me decide. If I can't make a decision I might do it to see how it looks & if I don't like it just peel them off. It's only vinyl & not expensive.

Decided to try this first

I thought I'd give these a try first and see how I like them.
Coming from the UK so I have to wait.

I got my rim decals. Put them on yesterday.
I like them so I think I'll hold off on the stripes for now.
