    Default Chrome M109R wheels from Simmons Motorworks in Georgia

    I'm sure they do good work, but still wanted to hear what you guys have to say and if you've had any problems with your wheels?

    Thanks!

    How are you guys getting them balanced. Seems to me that normal weights, clip or adhesive would damage the chrome? Balancing beads?

    I just had mine put on last week and got about 250 miles on them. Balanced with stick on weights for now, will upgrade to dyna beads next tire change. Ran up to 115mph so far and no problems. Only thing you most likely would encounter is needing to maching some off the inner diameter of the rear roter. When the chrome is built up on the larger rear wheel it will be out of spec on clearance. Simmons is the best, don't let this stop you. Everyone has nothing but good things to say about Chip and he's a great guy to work with. I will go to him for all my chrome needs.

    They chorme your stock wheels so I don't think they carry a 10. You could call and ask them.

    I bought a set from Simmons this past spring. I think they came out flawless and my bike looks 1000 times better. I had an awful experience with a chrome guy from California before to going with Simmons. I wasted valuable time and money dealing with the "other" guy. Go with Simmon's, you won't regret it. I plan on sending him some other parts and pieces this winter for chrome too.

    I plan on using balance beads. To me, there is no reason on spending all that money on chrome and having a weight stuck on it or putting a visible valve stem on there either. But that's just me.

    Simmons is the place to send your parts too. All his work is guaranteed. All the members that had work done from him. Are very happy with the work. I will be sending my parts to him in a few weeks. Here's his link:

    Do be aware that you (or your shop) may have to do a little grinding to get the wheel and hub to mate again. This isn't really Chip's fault--the tolerances for the splines are too close to allow them to mate easily after chroming. But it's an easy thing to fix, and again, the chrome looks great.
    I didn't have to do any grinding at all. Just slapped on the bling

    Chip has worked on my bike doing various modding. He did an excellent job both times. The bottom line is you can trust him. It looks like he has lots of supporters from the rest of the posts.

    He just got done doing my wheels, rear hub, and polished the axle for me. Nothing but great service from Chip and keeps you posted at all times. Looks great! I highly recommend him.
