Does anyone know the factory wheel weights for the 8 ball? I'm looking into custom wheels from RC components but I don't want to add weight. I have tried contacting victory to no avail

forged wheels can be lighter but!!

generally forged wheels allow a little weight reduction but, blingy wheels can be even heavier than stock cast wheels. cruiser wheel manufacturers play dumb as many wheels are even heavier than stock. its hard finding a lighter setup that you like + since fitments are for many models from same manufacturer they are made to carry bagger weights but fit lighter cruisers as well. carbon fiber wheels are very light + very $$$$ + fitments are scarce. post up if you find anything as i would like some for my 13 hammer, that 8.5" rear prolly weighs a ton. good luck
