Question Pinstripe the BST Carbon Fiber wheels or not?

I'm debating if I should add the red pinstriping to my BST Carbon Fiber wheels. Below, are a threesome of a few recent pics of my RR w/ the stock wheels including the pinstripe.



If you have not seen the BST CarbonFiber Wheels, click on this url link:

If I add the pinstripes, will it take away from the Carbon look? If I don't, will my bike look like she's missing something?

So, let's hear it!

YES...Pinstripes on the BST's?

or

NO...No pinstripes on the BST's?

yeah, pinstripe them. folks will still be able to see plenty of the carbon weave, and the rest of your bike is, uh, "busy," so naked wheels would seem out of place.

Well first let me say NICE BIKE.. I would say pinstripe them only because of the red pinstripes on your wings I think that if you did not stripe the wheels it would look like something is missing.

Carbon Fiber is sexy enough on its own. I wouldn't do it.

i kinda like the pinstripes b/c it matches the lines on the bike. if those red stripes come off the bike, then don't do it. but i think that it just flows with the rest of it. but do what you want. that thing will look sexy with or without them!!!!

I voted for no pinstripe. Show off that weave.

I rear ended a car a few days ago.......

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!

He was pissed!

He looked up at me and said "I am NOT happy!"

I said, "Then which one are you?"

use the thin reflective pinstripes. maybe even 1/8". it's only $6 shipped. if you don't like it, you can always take it off. best of both worlds, cheap, and nighttime safety to boot. www.reflectivepinstriping.com

it's a very good thing.

Do it. Why not? It'll match the red trim around the wings.

voted no...........carbon fiber is already sexy and stands out. pinstripes remind me of the days when ricers used to use it on their wheels.
