Default Paying homage to KyleNV's work... my 250 rear!

Installed her today. Widened rear wheel 18x9 / swingarm and hidden caliper. Installed them today. Just waiting on my tank and fenders to come back from paint.

Oh yeah... kudos to bucky685 on his quality velocity stacks. I had em chromed.

Looks good, I like mine.

Don't know if it makes a lot of difference but your rear disc (directional spokes) is flipped...

I used a shop in Ontario, CA called BJs Chrome and Custom. Turned out, they were just a middle man so I don't know which shop they used to chrome them. Chrome came out good but not too pleased with the customer service. The only reason I used them was they quoted me a two week turnaround on the wheels. Ended up taking over 4.

+1 .... it does imho. The rear rotor has a 45* chamfer machined on the ID of the rear face to clear the radiused inside corner machined on the stock aluminum wheel where the two surfaces mate.

It is possible when the rotor is flipped as noted by outlawarrior it will hang-up on the sharp broken corner and radiused inside corner causing the rotor not to sit flush to the machined surface as was intended! Especially if this surface wasn't masked during plating.

When i did my DIY 240 Phat chrome set-up i paid particular attention to cleaning these surfaces up for both the frt & rear wheels to be sure that the rotors sat properly

some jpegs attached if interested:

nice looking mods themartinz .... outlawarrior, you have a sharp eye :>)

I hate that!!!
I ran into a similar problem. Had I known the guy I was using was nothing more than a money exchanger and shipper I would have done it all myself... And the chromer he used was garbage, I would have used someone that was reputable. Live and learn.

Keep an eye on your chrome and keep it clean. A lot of shops are more concerned with volume than doing a job that lasts. Its funny how an oem car bumper can last 20+years, but aftermarket chrome your lucky to get 3 years.

Pops bought an aftermarket bumper for his Pete...rusty in less than a year...there is some real garbage out there today....
