Check out the 4 new colors for BSA wheels. Blacklight Green, Pink, Purple and Glow in the Dark White. They surely are Bright.

Derby Evolution posted a photo of the new wheels. Imagine the white wheels with graphite all over them. :eek:

All the better reason to use oil, my good man. ;)

Assuming it is allowed by the race rules, sure. However, unless it is an oil only race, they will invariably get fouled by graphite.

Thanks for the pictures.
The pictures I originally saw from another vendor appeared much lighter in color and had what I would describe as a "Neon" effect. I was hoping that is what the wheels would look like. After seeing the pictures on Derbytalk I suspect that is probably more close to what the wheels will look like.

Pretty sure BSA aren't stock. AFAIK BSA are mainly aftermarket and made in S. Africa. That was what I was told when I enquired about them a couple years ago.

Hi there, Byiani, Welcome to Derbytalk.
I was not aware that any BSA wheels were made anywhere other then the USA or China and carry an Official BSA stamp. As far as I know, the popular vendors carry only the BSA wheels that read, OFFICIAL BSA MADE IN USA on the inside of the wheel. I checked our "Search" function but could find nothing about a BSA wheel Made in South Africa. Would you please tell me how I can find some information on the Internet about a BSA wheel that is made in South Africa? Thank You.
