Default Wheels for my Black Road Glide

What do you think about this wheel on my bike?

GENUINE HARLEY DAVIDSON
Slotted Six-Spoke Wheel - Textured Black

A dramatic look that breaks the mold in motorcycle wheel styling. Available in black or chrome, this stylish custom wheel incorporates the strength of twelve spokes into the illusion of a lightweight six spoke design. Textured fingerlike slots radiate from the center to the uniquely rounded smooth finishes on the inner and outer rim. The combination of polished and textured finishes on the spokes, rim and hub fool the eye and add to the sleek appearance, while the premium quality cast aluminum construction reduces weight without compromising strength. Matching brake rotors and sprockets are available for a complete custom look. All Genuine Motor Accessory wheels have been certified by Harley-Davidson® to perform to our tough vehicle standards for handling, quality and durability. Requires separate purchase of model-specific Wheel Installation Kit

This product is available in multiple variations. Be sure to look for the one that fits the specific model and year of your motorcycle.

43921-08
16" Front
Fits '00-'08 Touring models. Also fits '09-later FLHRC models.



Anyone have them. Got pics????

Those would look good, the agitators would look better IMHO.

They don't make that wheel in 16 for 07s. I like them but they only come in 18 for the newer bikes.

It's a nice looking wheel for the price, I just prefer an 18" wheel on the front so you can see more of the wheel, the dual rotors hide most of the 16" wheel.

There is so little of the 16" front wheel that shows because of the brake rotors, it's difficult for me to consider spending $$$ to change, and the rear is virtually invisible with the saddlebags.

Suggestion: Find out how you can install an 18" wheel/rubber on your '07 and get a black/chrome Agitator front wheel, for example, and something that will compliment it for the rear. That SESG black/chrome wheel would look great on your black RG IMO.

As for the wheel you're considering, I'm sure it would be very nice with a matching/polished rotor or OEM Brembo rotor polished.

I gotta agree with the last post...try to go with a bigger wheel tire combo. On my 05, I put chrome thunderstars on but all you could really see was the chrome lip, I even went with a Fatboy fender to try and show more of the wheel....the rotors just covered it all up.
