White wheels

Iíve been thinking for a long time to have my wheels powder coated in white or maybe just the back one.
Some sports & naked bikes look great with alternatively painted wheels, but Iíd want to see a sample first.
Does any one know of a simple IOS or Android app that can change wheel colours from a photo.
I donít have the patients to learn photoshop.

Twiz,

I think that can be done with PhotoShop.

I would love to have my wheels white.

I have a price for disassembly, bead blasting, new wheel bearings and white powder coat $300.00.

Wouldn't it just get dirty, like right away? Would be a pain to keep clean all the time, so that I actually looks good.

Thatís a very reasonable price.
Over here thereís lots of wanna be painters that skimp on the correct processes, Iíll have to research some reviews for powder coaters.

Twizz, what color is your rebel? I can photoshop up a stock photo for you real quick. Or if you want, post a side view of your bike and I'll use that.

Thanks very much JR, canít wait to see the result.
Not sure if the lighting is adequate on either of these shots or even the resolution to play around with as Itís uploaded from an iPad?

White rims? You could always try plasti dipping one wheel to see how it looks and a can is pretty inexpensive.

Talking White print/writing on tyres

Has anyone looked at doing white writing on tyres- saw it on another bike and it looked tough ( liked yours Twizzian)

How was it done and with what type of pen/ does it last a while?

I used an oil based tyre pen, looks good after but fades quickly.
Best to find a good quality one, maybe mine was a cheapo

I didn't spend all that much time on it and only did one pic. But here you go. One in white and one in gray to match your paint, just for fun.
