Depends on the bike's color scheme. Post a picture of your bike?

With the graphics you want, I like the tapered stripes. I have solid stripes on mine, but it doesn't have the cool lightning.

Tapered looks great. Aren't they pretty cheap? Just put them on and skip a step. Or try one of each kind on each side of one wheel, just to get a feel.

I agree.. ordinarily I would say solid stripes, but after seeing your paint scheme, the tapered would probably set it off nice.

Thumbs up

Those would be wicked sick if they came in reflective. I like the tapered look.
