Looking for 32 hole 406 silver rims in stock somewhere.

Hey guys, wondering if anyone knows of some 32h 406 rims in silver somewhere... having trouble finding any. I can get Sun CR-18's from Jenson in 32h black but I was hoping for silver or chrome. Not really into $70 per rim for a Velocity however.

CR18, Used to build up my Bike Friday..
the black is just on the inside face, it's paint..
get out the simichrome, or other mild abrasives, and work.. polish thru it.
then polish and polish and polish to keep it shiny..

Thanks, I actually thought of your idea, fietsbob, but wasn't sure it was worth the hassle. The last time I stripped a bike frame of paint using Aircraft remover it was a huge pain in the rear to say the least, but if it's just paint, it'd be easy. I doubt it has thick primer like a bike frame.

@ Dynocoaster... cool, thanks, I will contact them. I thought I had looked everywhere. These places need better SEO, heh.

I like silver better than black too. If Gaerlan doesn`t have it in stock, try Harris- I just bought one from there at the same price.
