Staggered 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels

Would that be considered stock or custom?....shrug! Got my V-Rod on order and should arrive in April. Loading up the wishlist ...it'll never end.

Soon to be :broke:

There are a lot of really sweet looking custom rims out there, but I just can't seem to get over how nice the solid aluminum looks. I guess I'll have to live vicariously through other forum members custom wheels until I can get over it.

Depends on what look you're going for. If it's a low, mean, drag bike look then you have to get custom wheels - no question. However, if you want to keep the original look of the V-Rod (not lowering it, no fat tire, etc) then chromed stock wheels are the way to go.

Me personally, I have the Novas from Pro-One with matching rotors and pulley.

Damn Ricky G, I guess that would definitely qualify as being 'old school.' I guess if the rest of the bike is in this style you might have 1...2 horses max?

I've just thrown on Weld Choppers front and rear with rotors and pulley. Love them and they look bad as hell with a black paint job.
