What are some color choices people have used or have been using on ktms when not enjoying the look of black rims any longer? If you played MXVSATV Reflex, you will get the ktm with yellow rims vibe.

Im thinking of going either:

Yellow Takasago

Blue Takasago

Orange Takasago if i can find em.

Silver Takasago.

Post pics below, or maybe ideas. Just looking for some either pictures or ideas thank you. Photo

I guess I’m too old school for rims other than silver. Had an early 80’s Maico that had gold rims that looked decent but my choice is always silver.

Cheesy art but this is what I am going to do. Go to Haan wheels and build your own to see what they look like.

Only colors to ever go with are gold\yellow, or silver. Orange, brown, red, and blue go on some bikes ok. Black looks great, as long as bike is never ridden.

No, paying attention to up or down votes is ridiculous.

Orange rims on Katooms were very popular in the early 00s, more so than black rims were at the time

BTW, thanks to Emig Racing for the cool clamps on that 525, to my knowledge, the very first orange anodized ones on the market -and trust me, I'd been looking everywhere since the day I saw some on a factory KTM...
