    Feeler: What color would you like your Arrow Racing Rims?

    This is a feeler for a February shipment of rims. The rims are made in California and have been traditionally black. We have been toying with the idea of White. After they are welded they come raw...which is also a possibility.




    Thanks!

    What is the weight of these rims? I would take a couple raw rims so I could paint them red!

    they are HEAVY! I had a set of DHX's laced to Hadleys and they were invincible.
    Black looked badass, I did a custom job with a silver sharpie on my rear to make it checkered... that looked cool too.

    Give the people a choice. Black, White or Raw.

    I have both a set of 24's and 26's and these are by far the strongest rims I have ever used. I think you should offer all tree colors. That would give riders the choice of 2 popular colors and have the option to custom paint. I love these rims, just wish they were a little lighter.

    I would like to offer all the colors...powdercoat is getting expensive here in the US. The smaller batch on the powdercoat may raise the price a little on the black or white. We shall see.

    My personal raw set will probably end up Monster green. Thanks, keep the votes and comments coming.

    I'd say raw I think it'd be cool to have the option to paint it whatever color you wanted.

    Either straight raw or a brushed finish would be cool. Maybe even polished...

    Keep 'em black like they are. Arrow rims last too long to go with a fad color!

    This certainly didn't head the direction I thought it would. Thanks for the input guys! I'll give ya'll a heads up on what the production color ends up as.

    You have to bring them in in both raw and whatever color wins the poll (if it isn't raw). Man, raw Arrows laced to gold hope PIIs using silver spokes and gold nips on my raw B-rocket would be amazing.
