| RC SportMax V-MAX wheels
Now there is an affordable choice for wider wheels for the V-MAX,
in a choice of 16, 17, and 18", with a wide variety of styles, to
make your MAX STAND OUT in a crowd!!!
Just add brake side seal, brake rotor, and cushdrive from
your old wheel, mount tire, and bolt on!!!).
"Why do you recommend 18" Wheels over the 17"?
Answer: It kills the final drive ratio, (5000 RPM at 70 MPH is just CRAZY,)
like running in 3rd gear...
I like 4000 RPM at 70 MPH with 18s and an RS-MAX rear MUCH better, and
when the speeds go WAAAY up,
I am smiling in the helmet as I drive right around the guy with 17s...).
17's also require a HUGE fender spacer and new speedo gear up front,
without the spacer the front just looks goofy like a 'space-saver' tire/rim
on a VMAX,
18s leave more wheel design to see past the rotors...IMO.
A MAX is a big bike, and needs a big tire/wheel combo to match.
A common fallacy
(promoted by people who spend more time riding their computer than their
is that 18" tires are hard to come by.
Metzeler, Avon, and Dunlop all make VERY good tires for front and rear,
and with the V-Rod using an 18" rear, they will be making 18"
tires for YEARS to come.
