I have been trying to find a 27.5" gold rims for my DH GT but cannot find anything but black or black with a colored stripe. I have looked and asked everywhere but no luck. Does anyone know where to find them?
Thanks in advance

You could just go full custom and have your choice of alloy rims powder coated. It shouldn't be more than $50.

It's kinda funny that this is your complaint. Back in the mid nineties, I was proud to be the first person that i knew of in Santa Cruz with all black wheels. Black Rhino Lites, black spokes and black brass nipples.

Velocity make a polished silver rim. Otherwise yeah custom paint

I use silver spokes on all of my wheel builds. Doesnt get scratched, cheaper and looks super cool imo. All black just kinda looks boring and off the shelf, it's a custom wheel build i want it to look custom

You could try and get any aluminium rims you want refinished in anodized gold. https://www.mountainempireanodizing.com/services/

That would be pretty sweet. I don't get why everybody runs black wheels on trucks, dirt bikes, mtb. It's time for a little variety
