They are painted in a peel away paint called super wrap. I wasnt sure to go with white or gold powder coat so i tried this as a option before doing a permanent color.

Thanks

I like it! I had white wheels on my '01 Gixxer 1000 I bought new and kept until I got my '15. I loved them....when they were clean. They got dirty looking REAL fast though.

I tell ya, what I REALLY wanted was the blue forged wheels from the 2014 HP4,, and I'd have paid extra for them without batting an eye, but sadly, BMW was too stupid to make them an option, so I had to get the regular "forgies" in matte black...

Of the color choices you mentioned, white was the best option. no offense, but IMO gold would look hideous. Now, how about a red to match? Hell, if you're wrapping it, try a bunch of different colors, then decide.
