So my new rear tire arrives tomorrow, and I'm getting my rear mag rim all prepped for the install. The chucklefuck previous owner thought it would be cool to paint the rim red, and I'm not into the flat black/red/white ratrod bobber style that he was going for. Now is the time to change the rear rim.

I'm going to media blast the rim tonight, so everything will be ready for the tire install tomorrow. I don't know if I should paint the rim when I'm done or not, so this is where I need help from you guys. After some searching, I can't find much, so if there is already a thread on the subject I apologize for my lack of google ninja skills.

Here's what I have to deal with right now

I'd blast it and leave it alone. Here's a pic with mag rear and spokes

Ended up blasting it and leaving it alone, gave it kind of a 50's gasser mag rim kind of vibe I guess. Tire is getting mounted today, pics to follow.

I don't see any question in your first post with maybe the exception of "I don't know if I should paint my rim" which isn't actually a question. Is that what you're asking? If our opinion of your rear wheel matters more than your own opinion?

I guess I didn't exactly spell it out, but I figured the title of the thread would let people know that if they had pictures of bikes with rear mag/front spoke rims, they could post them here.

I suppose this thread doesn't have a purpose any more, because I got everything done and buttoned up yesterday, looks much better imo.
