If you've already installed bike mods, you may have noticed that some of them came with entries for a file called 'carcols.dat'. This is the file that SA uses to assign & select random vehicle colors. To edit it you need nothing more than Notepad as it's just a text file. You can find the file within the game's Data folder. Just make sure to save a backup somewhere before you start making changes. Once you load it, you'll see the range of colors you can use listed at the top. Be sure to enter colors in pairs, even if it looks like the model only uses one color.

The default for most vehicles is to use 8 different color combos but you can edit the entries to have more or less combos. I've never tried using more than 12... You'll also notice some only have one combo. Most of these can't actually be edited as the colors are fixed in the model and its textures.

What color goes where can only be changed by editing the 3d model of the vehicle. Not something you want to undertake if you have no experience in this area. You might be better off searching for a similar mod that does have different rim colors in this case.

So there ya go - a useful reply... Good luck!
