Custom Motorcycle Wheels Tips and Suggestions!

Custom motorcycle wheels are a must for your custom built motorcycle.   There are many options to choose from when picking out and purchasing your new motorcycle wheels.

The great thing about motorcycle wheels is that the wheel span can be adjusted to suit your custom chopper requirements. When you go to pick out your wheels ask yourself these questions. What size do you need for your custom motorcycle wheels? What off set and bolt pattern are you looking for when purchasing wheels?

Many options are available for the rims as well. You can find various styles for motorcycle wheels to suit every type of custom motorcycle that you are building.

In selecting a motorcycle wheel company keep in mind that they should understand all of your requirements. In other words you want to work with a company that specializes in custom motorcycles and/or parts. Not just an order taking company.

They should be willing to help you choose each and every part your bike will need. For instance, do you want chrome wheels? Depending on what you are looking for you can choose from several different types of wheels. If you are looking for aluminum custom motorcycle wheels then you might want to take a look at the aluminum racing wheels. If that is not the right kind of wheel for you then you can find cast aluminum, or steel rims.

Jesse James, founder of West Coast Choppers, one of the leading Custom Chopper companies in the country, has his own motorcycle wheel manufacturing company, Jesse James Wheels. Jesse did not like the way wheels were being made for cars and motorcycles. The custom wheels were first designed for cars and are now available for motorcycles. That is how Jesse James Wheels came to be. Jesse James Wheels also makes their own bullet caps and bullet rivets in both chrome and gold. Jesse offers several sizes of liquid forged wheels. The company will also customize wheels for your custom chopper if you want something more original than the standard motorcycle wheels the company offers.

Jesse James wheels can be purchased through several vendors both online and off, including The Wheel Connection, and Discount Wheel Warehouse. 

Orange County Choppers, one of West Coast Choppers biggest rivals, also make their own custom motorcycle wheels. Orange County Choppers, which is run by Paul Teutul Sr. and his son Paul Jr. offer an extensive list of custom motorcycle wheels.

Orange County Choppers can also personalize your custom motorcycle wheels. If you have an idea, for a custom chopper wheel, drop them a line and they can design the custom chopper wheels for you. You can purchase custom wheels at the Orange County Custom Chopper website. 

As you can see when it comes to motorcycles wheels your choices are endless. From custom wheels to custom gas tanks custom builders should be willing to make sure your custom built motorcycle will suit your needs. Hopefully they can even offer financing to help you get what you want.
