    Gold tire suggestion ...

    I've got a set of Gold Deep-V's with black spokes 'n hubs. Got any ideas for decent colored tires? (black is kinda boring). I searched for some sort of matching gold side wall but no luck, other than yellow wall...
    Am I destined to sticking with black tires?

    Celeste would probably look decent with gold. What does the rest of your bike look like?

    Celeste, gold, and silver would be a nice color scheme IMO. If you could find magenta/purple tires that would be cool too. Maybe better, idk.

    You'll never match gold tires to gold rims. Keep em black- the contrast of the two colors works fine.

    You know- you could just paint the whole bike gold.....

    so yeah, just paint it gold, it'll probably last longer than the tire
