Chrome wheels

G'day

Due to my rear wheel being buckled I was thinking of replacing both wheels with the genuine triumph chrome wheels. So a few questions for you all.

How is the chrome quality? Does the chrome get chipped easy when changing tyres? Anybody have any fitment problems?

Are there any other after market wheel choices out there?

Hi, I've got chrome wheels on mine and I'd say the quality was excellent.
They are very easy to clean and really set the bike off.
I've not changed tyres yet but would have thought if done properly with rim protectors then there should be no probs.

Ride On!!!

Thanks for the reply Robin.

Are stone chips an issue? how many miles / KM have you had them for?

Hi ST ( if I may chip in ;-) )

What Robin said ...

Chrome wheels here as well, good quality, no damage found on the rims when the Dealer changed over the tires, not detected any stone chips tho I do have a fender extenda on the front fender, had mine for just over a 1000 miles, of course getting the Chrome wheels will require getting the Chrome rear pulley as well ;-).

Tempting .... but divorce is so expensive

After the wheels and buying new tyres, not much left of $2000
