As you know, spoke wheels need to be trued every so often, hence my reason liking the mags on larger bikes like my RM and my FLHTCUI. As to white walls, had them on my FLSTN, would need to use comet/bleach/ etc. to keep them clean since the oils/ brake fluids etc. that came out of calipers/ lines would every so often slap up against the tires. Also cleaning spokes to make chrome look good was a choir, and with the big skirts on the RM, for me to much hassle to even think about. Feel one would be spending more time cleaning then riding, but if Chrome gets you home go for it.I do like the spoked wheels, however. I'm going to mock up a version with fat spokes next...
