Default Re: My newest VW, the "Fire Bug"

So for the past few days (could have been a few weeks) but I finally got my rear wheels painted, put the tires on them, & put them on the V-Rod & have driven it about 100 miles, 30 miles of which were on the high way at about 70 mph, it rides better now, but only because of the wider rear wheel I put on, that's my story & I'm sticking to it

Some pics, I even painted the front wheels to match the rear wheel, that's until I can get a tire for my VW wheels I painted to match the rear wheels

The first two pictures are with the matching wheels which are much smaller than a regular VW tire, I had to drive it for a day until I could put the rear tires put back on the widened wheels, driving it that one day was a drag, literally a drag, every bump I hit it just scraped the ground

OK here are a few pics

With the 8 inch wide wheels on
