You either have to have them or you don't. The dudes in business so I says some folks HAS to have them.

Either way, that's an insane amount for wheels. Of course, if I had the cash I'd probably get them. :lol:

Fun to sit on here with empty pockets talking about them being too expensive but if i had $3K layinig around i may just have a change of heart!

After a kit like that is installed how does the rear suspension/ride change. More rigid? Just curious as i would love the look!

I doesn't affect the ride, the rear shock is adjustable so you can control the "stiffness".....

it wont affect the "ride", but it *will* affect the handleing. ive only ridin a couple bikes with fat rearends (one was raked out pretty good too) and they do turn differently. turning seems slower. not the real setup for twisties is what Ive heard.

I think they're really nice. With the proper rider, I'd think they'd attract a different type of curve. :newyear:

You can get a krome or polished wheels through RC comp. for about the same price with a wider selection. As for the ride with the wide tire I have been riding mine for about 8 months and I can not feel that big a different. The problem that I have found is that there is not a 240 finder out there so you are using a 210 fender. Because of that there is rubbing if you do not raise the shock and don't lower the swing arm.
