    Every once in a while someone asks about wheels for the Rocket. Has anyone replaced them? How about with some spokes? I have always preferred spokes over cast wheels in fact the more spokes the better. However, I don't know if they would work with the Rocket shaft set up. But just the front would be OK by me. The Rocket's front wheel is 3.5 X 17 and rear is 7.5 X 16. I noticed one of the new VTX 1800's has spokes and the front wheel is a 17. Wonder how that would look on the Rocket?

    I wonder if the Rocket's torque would rip those spokes right out of there? I would buy a spoke wrench anyway..:)

    AMAZING Wheels...

    I thought I'd seen it all with billet wheels but these are AMAZING! Imaging one of these on your R3?? I think they'd be a huge hit... :D :D :D

    How would you like to have that baby lock up on you going about 140?

    :) I think our super large twin front rotors would hide most of any cool looking wheel...look at your Rocket and see how much wheel you can really see

    Good point jeff1. If we did buy wheels we would need to make sure most of the glamor is toward the rim for all to see.:D
