Harley shows a chrome wheel but the center is still cast (below). As for sending them out to be plated that is fine but I don't really know anyone that has had this done and how they held up in the long run. Chromethathog has good prices but their lack of warranty leaves me wondering--sure they may look good the day I get them but what about a year or two from now--there's another thread on that discusses them with mixed opinions. Anyone know of another place I could at least consider using?
It cost 20 bucks to have the bearings pressed back in and the tires mounted. That's 20 total for both wheels. Did the installation at home. The same buddy has an 03 Electra Glide Standard. He will be sending those off to be polished and chromed in a week or two.
Just sent them my V-ROD wheels, and a bunch of other parts.
Don’t know anyone who has tried them.
There prices are the best and its triple plating.
I decided to give them a try.
I’ll post results in a few weeks.
I am probably in the minority here but I like the raw look of the stock Fatboy wheels. To me, that is part of what makes the bike a Fatboy. If I was going to change the wheels on a Softail I would probably buy the Heritage Softail instead of the Fatboy to begin with. The i would put the aftermarket wheels on that bike.
I am getting the inside rough cast machined out to match the rest of the finished part of the wheel. $150 per wheel. Will post pics next week. Seems like no one wanted to do this or knew anyone who would do it.
