In all honesty a solid rear rim may catch a bit more wind regardless of the fact that you are on a bagger than any other sort of rim. Were it my bike I would do something different. I realize that you do not see much of the rear rim but I see it as a waste of money.

Either powder or chrome the stock wheel or get s et of wheels. that is what I would do. Of course not everyone does things the same but I hate to see money wasted.

Another option would be doing an exchange with Willy Shiny ... it won't be solid but at least it'd be chrome. (and cheaper!)
I would but they don't make the agitator in 17"

why so stuck on a 17 in the back? thats an odd size and you'll have a hard time finding tires while on the road should you pick up a nail or something.

the difference in radius between the stock 16'' and the cvo 18'' is only about 3/8'' due to the lower profile tire on the 18.
I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Here is a picture of an 18" front and 16" rear. Although I am pretty sure you can not get a 16 agitator. That was the wheel that I was looking at. And then I got the Blade wheels, so that I could match.
