Default New wheels, Bike lean qsuestion

Well finally got the wheels mounted and on and noticed my bike leans a little more when on the kick stand. This is because the bike is about an inch taller now due to the taller wheel profiles. My questions is will this hurt the kick stand? Its not drastic but noticeable.

Thanks

Does not appear to be a problem. It's not leaning way over.

I wouldn't think so but if you're worried get a piece of wood to set it on when it sits in the garage. The wheels look great!

Luv the laced wheels! They look great!

If you are worried about too much lean consider a thicker wear plate or a spacer on the kickstands footpad to bring it back up to a more comfortable angle

They do look good.

Wonder if red on the spoke ends would pull off of the pin striping and tank badge or be a little too much contrast.

There is just something about a laced wheel on a bike.... kinda like garters on a lady
