replace nipples Not spoke

want to replace just the nipples on my rim. how would i go about doing that. The spokes are good stainless but the nipples are a bit corroded. want to put coloured alloy nipples on existing spokes.

Provided they aren't seized, pull the tire and rim strip. One at a time, if you are lucky, may not need truing.

I would just unscrew one at a time making sure the one I replaced is torque back up correctly then move onto the next.

Give it a spin at the end and see how much it wobbles!! All being well it won’t an off you go
