Who has been using chrome wheels for 5 years or over and where did you purchase them? My brother is looking to get a set after this riding season. Ideally, he would trade his stock set of wheels in as part of the purchase.

Thanks,
Keith

I think handing in your old wheels for exchange is the normal practice. If they salt the roads where you live, the chrome might not be good for 5 years. The Goldwings I see in the UK with chrome wheels, suffer bad in the Winter when the salt goes down. Mind you, the stock uncoated wheels don't fare too well either.

Get some Bomb polish. It will make your wheels shine like chrome with a little work.

I had them put on my '06 when I picked up the bike in '06 from Shoeder's Ashville NC. Best thing I ever bought. Polish begining of the season and that's it. Wash up just like any other part of the bike, very easy.
