Installing Sinister Wheels and a Klock Werks Fender

Harley-Davidson bagger beautification

There is nothing more classic than a set of spoke wheels with a whitewall tire. Good spokes last a lifetime. Bad spokes rust and can fail. Why not have the best of both wheels with the looks of a spoke wheel made from billet aluminum? That’s the real beauty of the Billet Daddy wheels from Sinister. For that added bit of extra flair, we added a color-matched Benchmark Front Fender from Klock Werks. This is a job that can easily be done in the garage, but with anything wheels and tires we always use the experts at Wheel Works because they just make it so easy and quick!

Step 1: The first step is to remove the blue protective coating on the whitewalls with a brush and water. Step 2: Wheel Works makes mounting tires a cinch without marring or damaging the wheels. Step 3: Rather than put unsightly wheel weights, we use Dyna Beads. These small, coated glass spheres distribute themselves to balance the wheels as they rotate. Step 4: The front tire is cleaned and mounted.
