    I'm considering purchasing this wheel kit, has anyone bought it or have comments? Replacing stock 2007 Road King 16" front wheel and was told this is a bolt on with no alterations needed. I understand its not the quality of Performance Machine but finances dictate!

    did you end up going with the 21" front wheel? I bought one, it says it fits. but when I put it on it lines up almost .5" off center of the fender. when I center it, the rotor isn't aligned with the caliper. did you have any problems like this?

    Personally, I don't care for spoke wheels. They LOOK nice, but cant be repaired on the roadside if a flat occurs.
    I keep a plug kit and CO2 cartridges in my saddlebag, been stranded twice, no more.

    Lots of work to keep clean and shiny!
