New wheels

Thinking about getting new wheels this year as my recent wheels that are 4 years old look a little rough. Chrome is pitting and peeling. What ya think.

Yup. I was looking at them when I bought the rpm wheels. They didn't offer them in the black ops option then.

Why not just have your current wheels sandblasted and powder coated?

Cause a lot of people already have these rims in black. That's why I went with the chrome cause no one had them. It took me to go all the way out to MWT this year to the Harley museum bike night to park next to a guy with a VROD and have the same exact god damn rims I have. Been wanting to change them ever since.

If I'm going to keep what I have I'm either going to have them redone the way they are or have the centers painted in brandywine kandy to match the paint on the bike. Decisions decisions

Haha, I wouldn't know what thats like here in Idaho. People think that my bike is custom just because there are so few vrods in the area (but plenty of more standard hd's). I'm sure you'll find a buyer interested in refinishing that 10 inch wheel, which will offset the cost of the next set. Good luck!

Well if you are dead set on new wheels I won't try and talk you out of it. If you want to kick those nasty old wheels to the curb, I'll take'em off your hands

You mean you want to swap the rims on your bike for the ones on the pics in the first post? That's a downgrade IMHO

Unless you're aiming for the contrast cut, that's far better
