    I want to get a set of chrome wheels for my 2008 UC, wondering what brand everyone has. I liked a set of Xtreme Wheels but I could buy another bike for the cost of the wheels, here is there proce for a chrome wheel set up:
    Wheel @ 1199.00 each
    Pulley @ 599.00
    Rotors @ 399.00 Each
    Plus the rear rotor

    Maybe I should just get the Harley Nine Spoke chrome wheel. Looking for some opinions.

      I did all kinds of blingy stuff when I had my FXD, always wanted to change the wheels but never really had the $800+ to put the ThunderStars I wanted on. When I bought the RKC I made an agreement with myself to limit accessorizing to functional (exhaust, better seat, pullback bars, etc.) With the exception of the little medallion in the middle of the SE breather, I've stuck to it. I can easily see why you'd want to add those wheels, but day-um. The ones that came with the bike are round and hold the tires on. Still, if you can afford it and it makes ya happy, who am I to pizzle on your gleeful pursuit of chrome.
      I know, this was of no value to you at all. Sorry.

        I have seen some owners take the stock Ultra wheels and have them chromed... 800 buck for both, and they look pretty dang good. Plus your pulley and rotors will match if you don't want to get chrome ones. This is the way I will be going if I get the bug for chrome wheels.

                Holy Crap that is a lot of money for wheels..... Nice looking but I could not justify spending that much money if it doesn't make the bike faster, more comfortable, or hold more gear.

                    I thought about the Harley chrome nine spoke and am still considering them, but these wheels just stand out so much, I am not worried about the $$$$$$$$$, not saying I have money to just blow like that, but I really really like them.

                        I like spokes. But I know what you mean. Once I get it in my mind that I want something it becomes a quest. It used to be that way anyway.:)

                          I was just checking out HD wheels, and the one I like is 1100.00? So I might as well get the flamed ones. Hopefully! Unless I go with just a chrome 9 spoke HD wheel...
