Question Custom Stock Size Rims

I'm pretty much done with inside the engine. Now to spend time on the looks of my bike. I've looked some, but do not usually see a good selection (from my likes) of custom stock size black contrast rims. Usually only find big twin sizes.

Any links, picts of your rims with size etc would be appreciated. My bike has stock 2000 883 XL cast rims. Not sure if want to send them off and get powder coated black (pros and cons?), and have the 9 cast spokes edge be shaved or what not to achieve the contrast effect.

Or to find a nice set of brand new black and aluminum/chrome contrast rims that look good.

Or if can only use similar size rims, what mods need to be done, bearings, axle, spacers etc.

Just starting to learn on this end. Moving on from engine, until maybe new 6 speed gears, or custom set of gears installed, with one tooth lower engine sprocket, and 5th gear to match lower RPM's on highway riding.

Thanks for any input.
