Alex DX-32

I'm looking for a pair of 26" DX-32s and was wondering if they come in completely all black? I've seen silver, and I've seen black with a silver sidewall. I haven't seen all black though. I was wondering if perhaps anyone knows if QBP carries all black ones... Thanks.

Did you check the website? It should say the colours. A brief yet short look on the site tells me no. Simply because they only list the one colour scheme

The site says Silver/Black and Im not sure if that's all silver or all black or a mix.

Unlace them and spray paint the parts seperately.

the black dx-32 does have silver sidewalls. The rim is designed to be run with rim brakes (most commonly magura hs-33's for trials), hence the brakeing surface is not painted or the grip would be affected.

Off topic- What are you going to use these rims for?

DH/Freeride. Plus I like how they're wide. Looks good.

You could probably find better rims for that usage. Dx32's are more of a street/trials rim, but they'll work for what you want them to.
