  • Chroming wheels

    Hey guys just wondering if anyone had chromed there stock wheels? Is It even possible did it end up being cheaper than buying new? And how does it look

    Chromed cast wheels look great... Cost is going to be about $1300-1500 with new wheel bearings pressed in, shipping both ways, and the chroming process, dismounting and remounting tires etc. Looks great IMHO. Don't spend a DIME on the stock spoked wheels....they are junk. Just get an appropriate chrome spoken HD wheel and a member here (Smokescreen aka Jason) makes spacers to get them to fit. Another person (Tom Lento Punch) makes fender spacers as well if you want to go to a 21-26 front wheel. Custom wheels with matching pulleys are going to run you a solid $2500+ (cheapest) new for the whole setup. May have to get different fender as well for front depending on size of wheel.

    I just got a great deal on a used 21 inch front wheel/tire/rotors/fender setup for my Roadliner.... New price for everything was $2400....just for front setup. It's an expensive proposition for sure. Painted stock spokes (black and retain chrome lip) is the very cheapest option and looks good when done right.

    I'm using Rotation Falcon Darkside 21 in wheel with matching rotors, RC rotor bolts, Avon Cobra Chrome tire (120-70/21), Low and Mean Reaper fender, spikes for axle. Still waiting on fender to come back from paint...

      You spent as much for a front wheel as I spent for my whole damn bike! That's some serious Road Star love there.
