I had PE do my Stryker rims and I wasn't that impressed.  Not sure anyone else could do better.  Just my experience.  They're to expensive too if you ask me.  Check ebay.  There are at least three different people selling them. 
It's easier to get forgiveness than permission.

chrome on aluminum?  ok if you don't ride in the rain. go for the best warrenty. one little bubble and it's all over. paid to see that movie. used to go to the shore when we were kids and get sunburned, in a week we were peelin' that top layer off just like the chrome that chrome components did on my wheels. very thin and easy to peel..peeling paint, peeling taters, and peeling wheels. lot's o fun.

Figured I would ask.....Who is everybody using for chroming stock wheels... Seems like I found a company that does an exchange program of wheels, rotors, whatever...
Im having this place do mine...it's a swap thing... http://www.performanceedge.us/home.html the fella that runs it...might even be the owner for all I know....is a member of the site here I do believe.
I did have mine done...pics in profile if your interested...rims, pully, hubs, chrome side mount plate holder, chrome rotor cover...all done in a Saturday Morning while I went to the pro football hall of fame....1,950.00$
But was that price including making the rear wheel 8.5" wide from the 7.5" stock wheel

I also agree. Who ever does PE's chrome does damn good work but Matt can be a pita to deal with if something goes wrong.

Please elaborate.

I was sent warped rotors but did not realize it until I rode the bike. He would not pay for labor or my shipping and would not take blame until they were back in his possession and he had to put them on one of his bikes to try them out before he would send me a new set. My bike was down for quite a while just waitng for him to put them on one of his bikes. Luckily my bike was in the shop for others mods at the same time. And I'm also one of the unlucky customers whose rear wheel weld is pretty obvious. But on a good note the chrome still looks wet after 2 riding seasons.
GO BIG OR GO HOME

I used Chip Simmonís Cycle Image and am very pleased with the price and quality too.
I go too far and too fast to ride a Harley! If you see my bike on a trailer call 911. A Corbin fairing, bags, heated seat, V-Rail and back rest, PC3, PR Air Kit, V&H BR, 5" Chopper's Surplus Z Bars, DWG sound system, Indian front fender, mucho Kuryakyn and Yammy bling,

Hi Ares. You can go back in time with the big problems Veper had. To this day I never did hear how it turned out but it was serious. If you missed it I'm sure T can bring you up to speed.
There were also other troubles. Right before Ace turned over the site another member had an issue with grips and availability and a pissing match with Matt. This in turn resulted with PE's sponsor logo being removed from the home page. And recently we had a bearing issue with a current member and I will not mention his name, but that got hairy for a while. He can re mention it if he wants. And  08pwraider is not the first to have issues with rotors and getting fair compensation.

Ok, so should I just buy the chrome wheels from yamaha? I met the people that make them for yamaha when I went to street vibrations in Reno this year. They said that I could NOT get them directly from them, I had to go through yamaha. Verrrry expensive but I want the look.
If they won't look for you, MAKE, them hear you.

If you're going to drop some coin on wheels.... have you looked at RC Component?

Agreed!!!  I could be off, but from what I've calculated the RC wheels will run me about $4000 after all is said and done.  They are goegeous though.

This is one of the cases where I agree with Bill wrapping it into the whole loan thing right up front.  If I eve buy a new Raider and the finance company will allow it, I'm getting the RC wheels.

I just love the Eclipse Savage.
