Ok as the bike is a non std colour and the wheels are I was thinking of doing them a different colour what do you guys think would go with the bike colour was thinking of Gold with a Gold Triumph Logo on the top part of the tank

That's exactly the colour scheme I want, with vents in black as well.  Actually think the gold wheels might work. used to have gold wheels on my  blue ST1100, altho a standard colour on the ST1100, but looked pretty good.

Not that it may/may not look good with the red, but I think it would work.

Personally I think if I went for the same colour scheme, Id have the wheels in matching black

Gold would look good..... very 'Iron Man'! LOL

If you do go for gold then I would do the side vents too... the ones that are currently black.

I think it looks good as it is - the red line around the wheels are very complimentary and are all that you need.

I think that if you were to change the wheels to gold, it might look a bit "over the top".

That looks good as it is. Not over the top. If anything I would have black wheels with red pin stripe and black side vents.

Just found a pic of my old VFR with the gold rims I sprayed, that's what gave me the Idea of gold

My vote would be black with red pinstripe.  I think introducing another colour, gold, would detract from a very smart looking bike.

Just my $0.02 worth.

BTW I'm sure I've seen chromed wheels on the TTSE on this site and was surprised at how good they looked.
