Something that's always sort of bugged me about my motorcycle trailer were the ugly grey colored factory rims. I had considered having them powdercoated but each time justified that there were better places to spend the money, lol. I had thought about simply rattle canning 'em many times but due to the places where I take this thing, it wouldn't have taken long before they looked like crap.

I was placing an order from E-trailer for something else and noticed they had free shipping on orders over $99 so I finally convinced myself just to order a set of powdercoated black rims. It was actually cheaper to purchase these than it was to have the originals powdercoated at a shop.

Here's what it looked like before:

I was away for several days at a a business conference earlier in the week and decided to take the take the dirt bike along with for some riding in between. Whenever I can combine work with some fun, I'm all for it! :thumbs:

The trailer, and the E-con. hotrod hooked up in front both look great!

I myself have always loved the look of nice fresh "steelies". ;)

Well, I like the silver ones!  They DO look lighter built and yes, never have much paint on them new, but the silver goes with the other trim I think. They also have that "Sporty" look, heh!

At the first pic, I saw nothing wrong with the look of the grey wheels. Hooked to the truck changed my opinion, however.

Now it just needs something with a bow tie hooked to the front....

Great look. I've been thinking of something similar for my trailer. Got me gerbils turning now.

To each their own! :)

It flows a lot better.

No thanks, I'll keep my solid axle. :D
