I went to one of my local dealers today to get a tire changed and I was able to purchase for $190.00 a brand new rear rim with the factory 250 Dunlap with the TPMS. This is something they had after a trike conversion of a brand new bike. I felt it was a fair deal and bought it. Does it sound good for me?

Sorry. It's only a 'FAIR' deal - especially with the Dunflop 250 on it.

It was a 2010 or older, I bought a 2012 trike takeoff from the swingarm back for 300. This included the rotor, brakes, rearend, wheel and a brand new stone.

If you didn't really need a new rim, then not a good deal.

If you did need a new rim, then pretty good deal IMO.

Well the tire isn't my first choice for sure, but you can easily see that it hasn't been on the ground and said the rim alone retailed for over $500.00 in the Honda listing. He has a good deal more items all of which came off late model bikes to convert into trikes.

It nice to have a spare rear wheel, If your going on a trip and think you might need a new tire you can one ready to go on the spare wheel and switch it. Then when you get back home you can switch back and run the rest of the miles off the other wheel.

I paid $225 for a new wheel with a D250 on it 2 years ago. The guy had me over barrel and knew it. I was stranded on Memorial Day Weekend with a delaminated tire and no open dealers. I would have given him $325 for the thing just so I could get home. You got a deal that was fair to all involved...paul
