Just curious, did this tire raise the ride height at all? i know the sidewall has a lower profile but it looks taller.

According to the Low and Mean video on YouTube, the Metz 240mm is actually shorter.

Would you please message me privately? I'd like to know how things go. I have a spare wheel I'll be doing the same with shortly. I've heard good things about Sandy (Kosman). I've also heard it'll take a few months to get it back.

Thanks. I'd appreciate it. I'm not sure who he uses for chroming, but I'll be having him send mine to Classic Components so the rear matches the front as much as possible.

Classic does great work. My buddy did his wheels there and they have a wet chrome. Looks beautiful. Better than regular chrome job

It seems to be rounder but not really lower?

Low and Mean's web site has a video that shows how to do this but they say that too much of the tire gets rounded out because the stock rim is not wide enough so u don't get the full contact I would love to see how it looks on a finished bike.....
