I wanted to get some feedback on what color red for the rims people think best matches the red Konica Minolta fairings. I was suggested candy red but I feel as though that color would make the rims brighter than the fairings? I'm wanting the entire bike to meld pretty much like the repsol with it's orange rims. Thanks for reading!

ya that red is a little bit too dark for ur bike, id say go lighter, and go for a matte finish with the rims, its hard to keep shiny rims clean

Nice photos Nuttynu, thanks for that! It gives me the comparison I wanted with the candy red. Does anyone know of other members with these fairings and Duc red rims? I wonder what that looks like? Is the red on the fairings a "Honda" red? I mean, there are a ton of variations on the color red right? I just want to be specific when I get them pc'd :)

Crow, my fairings are actually on their way and I was hoping to get my rims done in the meantime but I'm worried that the color won't be to my liking which is why I'm wondering if I should just wait so I have a color they can palette? Decisions, decisions!

Ace03, I've considered that but I think I would like red better :D

imo, if you have time and aint in a rush to ride, just wait till you get your fairings and all then PC them. i did all my mods in the winter and i had plentyfull of time, yet tho i rush a bit as well.. its that feeling of seeing the finish project, i understand bruh

It's true that I want to see her put together as soon as possible hehe. I think I'll take the advice to wait and get her done to my exact liking. Thanks everyone!
