I think I'm getting bored of the stock wheels on my 2002
VTX1800C. I like them, but I think I just want something... different.

What are my options for different rims?
What would the process of installing different rims be like, any added parts, different parts to make things fit, etc, etc.

Apologies if this isn't the right thread to post this in. <3

Consider having them powdercoated day glow orange. 馃槑 Kidding aside. Just keep them clean and fatten up the rubber via double darkside.
I did actually consider having these rims painted, along with the fenders and fuel tank. Probably gonna do a nice royal purple. But I guess what I'm really wondering at this point is if there are different cast spoke wheel options for the 1800c model, kinda like what the F model has. Something different than this bulky looking swirl design lol

The F wheel is an iconic style. I like them as well. Most aftermarket sources have gone away, but you migh get lucky with the search mode. If you want something in chrome, they might cost you close to a couple grand, so be wary.
Yeah, for sure. I'm happy with the color of these stock cast wheels. It's not chrome but they still look alright, color wise. I had planned to put reflective strips on them to make them pop a little more. But yeah, I definitely do not have the budget for chromed out rims hahaha.

It does kinda suck that it seems so hard to find aftermarket wheels that will fit the 1800C. Wish there were more readily available choices.
I wonder if it'd be possible to transfer the wheels of the F model to the C model? :eek:

Thats kinda what I'm looking for. Just something other than the stock C wheels which are these bulky swirl designs. If I could find wheels from the F model, is it possible to fit them to a C model?
