Buy white HPI rims and dye them with RIT fabric dye. Demonstration of the process in the USVTA thread.

Not sure if they're 12mm hex, but they look like TC wheels.

looks good, might be the angle, but you could probably go 6mm in the front and even more in the rear...

Yep, just the angle playing with the visuals. This new chassis also is narrower than I'm used to and I don't have any offset hubs yet. I could probably go another 2 mm in back with no problem.

Be careful buying your wheels. Colors like yellow seldom ever match available paint colors. That's why I paint most of mine to match if I want that look.
