Thanks I appreciate your firm answer. I have to say I do agree on one aspect although I do see a lot of really good riders doing wheelies and stunting and they have chrome rims. Like someone on that wheelie boy footage from the dude that's here. Well either way I just thought it would look really good.vigis said:Dont know about price, you'd have to look around your area.
As for why no one has talked about them well...
I have the agreement of every rider I've ever spoken to on this subject, crome rims on the street screams poser. People who do that ride the bike to try and look cool and not for the ride itself, same breed that trick out Honda civics. They are to be avoided. Cruisers are a different matter. Opinion, yes, but so far it has held true.
Additionally, rims on bikes are a bitch to keep clean. Ride for about a mile and it doesnt matter what color they were, they are now grey. Thats why you see black rims on bikes almost exclusivly.
No thats cool I believe in honest answers. I also agree with you like vigis. Now I do have a good point the bring up disregarding the term "loud pipes saves lives" which I firmly believe it, vigis said the chrome could be in the same class as civic lovers, now a lot of sportbike riders get the pipe not caring about dynos but wanting the loud noise it provides. Would you agree that is in the same category as civic customizers?IronNutz said:Please do not put chrome rims on this bike... It's a friggen street-legal track bike, not a poser-mobile. If you want shiney, polish the rims. It saves weight, doesn't comprimise the integrity, and doesn't look squidly. Chrome is heavy, cracks under loads that a normal wheel wouldn't, is expensive, and tells people right off the bat that you don't know how to ride the bike like it was designed. Every guy I know that has chrome rims on his bike, slows down for every corner. It seriously is a pre-warning of people I need to be in front of when going into the twistys. No offense, I just have a bad taste in my mouth about the subject.
