I've been looking for some new wheels for my 2001 Deuce, what is the advantage of chrome vs. polished & vice versa??? Also, what is the largest rear tire I can put on the back wheel without any modifications? Is there a down side to a wider rear wheel??

Your input is appreciated!!!!

Thanks,

KIM

rear tire

im putting a 180 rear tire without modification of my deuce. hawghalters is doing the work. i went with the polished wheel. they are more work, but with the chrome wheel you are screwed if you get chips.

I was told by James at Performance Machine that the only 180mm tire that would fit without any problems is the Avon tire. We were talking about also changing the wheel to a 18 x 5.5". Is this what your also doing??

I've noticed that the chrome wheels look great when clean, but show the dirt a little quicker then the "spun" look :D

One other thing with chrome, if it's not done right it can flake, and then you're up the creek. And the only way to correct it is to get it re-chromed and that can be costly.
