Default Chrome Wheels

Has anyone here purchased Chrome Wheels for their fury from Simmons Motorworks? Here a link to the Wheels for the fury...

2010 - 2011 Honda Fury VT1300CX

They claim to have a very good chroming process...
Chemically cleaned and stripped.
Dipped in copper, which acts as a filler for all the minor scratches and fills in the natural high and low spots.
Dipped in nickel, which acts as a base coat for the chrome.
Dipped three times in the highest quality chrome.
Buffed polished to a show quality shine.

These wheels fit all the 2010 VT1300CX models, and the 2010 VT1300CXA models. The stock OEM wheel sizes are, front 21" diameter x 2.15" wide, and the rear is 18" diameter x 6.25" wide. I assume this would be the same size for the 2012 VT1300CX model.


Wheels come with new bearings and dust seals and are $850.00 with your factory wheels in exchange.


Just looking to see if there is good feed back to these wheels and or for the company???

Have you looked into Classic Components? I want to say mine was cheaper than that after the core returns. See below:

Taken from email:

Wheels are $700 for the set with a 900 dollar core deposit.
The rotors are 175 for the set with a 200 dollar core. If you purchase the wheels and the rotors together we would just charge the 900 dollars for the core.
Thanks, Mike

You can also check out Bikes2nv.com out of Columbus, OH. I think several members got their wheels from them.

I don't remember that companies name ever being mentioned on the forum, but that doesn't mean they are a bad company, and just like all the other companies that people recommend on here someone had to be the first to try them out and pass along the good or bad of that company.

Some words of advice is to try and research this company the best you can and even see if they have a BBB listing to see if they have some complaints, stuff like that, would rather do a little research than to end up having a terrible experience with them.

Good luck.

I had mine done at Bikes2NV. Quality is second to none. One of the biggest differences is the quality around the hub 10/10 "Flawless"! Also, they have a 5yr warranty. May not be the cheapest but, worth it! Check out their hammer test video on you tube.
Next, I used a chromer from this web site (Stumpwrex) for calipers, lowere forks and dust ring and they all had issues with a 2 month turn around time (thumbs down).
Then I then discovered Airline plating, I would give them a 9.4/10. I gave them a 9.4 because when i was installing my chromed out tree, i put some light scratches on it from my headlight (my headlight is pastic). Other than that I am very pleased with there work, turn around time and plan to use them again

The rear wheels are different between the non ABS VT1300CX and ABS VT1300CXA. Simmons are saying they are the same they are worng and I wouldn't trust them. Go with Classic, they do a great job.
