photoshop it. Or if you can't afford photoshop, get Gimp.

That's what I do to get an idea of how the bike will look with new parts.

i didn't want to post in this thread because i think it's making me stupider. seriously?

they'll look fine. not as good as all black wheels, but the red and black are basically a monotone theme. this isn't rocket science. they're just wheels.

Either that or you can take a survey about each individual part and end up with a bike that nobody (including you) likes.
