Let's see photos of your white wheels!

I am looking at upgrading wheels and considering a custom build to get the color, weight and value I want. Anyone have pictures of white wheel sets? I saved a while for my new bike and appearance is important to me as we'll as performance. I'm thinking white rims, black spokes and white hubs. Would like to see any combination of white. Here's my ride. Thanks for your help!

I think that white rims would work with that bike. Good luck.

My bike came with Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheels -- white rims and hubs and black spokes.

I think that white rims would look good on your bike.

My highracer. The wheels are what come on some upper-end Specialized. The hubs are white...

White Wall Tires? I bought a nice Michelin a few days ago, the "City" model, and it has a Reflective Sidewall:



It's a 700x32. Not exactly what you were asking about, but definitely makes it look like you have white rims.



Here's the bike locked to the ped-xing sign at the local stop-n-shop.

My advice is , get a set of tires with reflective sidewalls.
