Simple And Affordable Motorcycle Wheel Package

After a multi-year wave of motorcycle wheels whose designs were getting so complicated that they almost look like the mechanism of our watches, the industry is back to pure and simple ones. Consequently, and because less machining is being involved, custom wheels are getting more and more affordable. This approach is adopted by many, including Couture Wheels releasing a new line of “economy” wheels with a design that will not distract your eyes from the overall look of your bike.
This model called Rally is sold 1,650.00 for a complete set in chrome including 2 wheels in the size of 16 X 3.5 or 18 X 3.5, and 2 rotors, 1 pulley, assembled with all necessary hardware. The wheel sets come with a 2 year warranty on chrome and lifetime structural warranty.
Couture Wheels states that all their wheels are tested for fatigue failure to ensure that they produce a quality wheel for a lifetime of service. Couture Wheels.

    I have checked out the Couture Wheels web site, only to see wheels that are very furmiler to me. Wheels taht are copies of other wheel companies. Photos of the wheels are the exact same photos from the other wheel companies. Couture is just calling the wheel by another name. Copying designs and changing them is one thing,, Using the same photo is lazy and wrong for any counterfeiter.

    aaren jensen, domestic corp. llc was filed (open for business) on 03-18-2010 in mesa arizona…sounds american to me..but are the products produced in america? the web site says the wheels are data tested for strength on a computer, i know most american wheel companies(good ones) actually physically load test their wheels, not just a computer model..well how about it aaren, the people want to know..the wheels look nice and seem to be a great deal…i smell overseas shipping involved..but his website is nice..

    Oh come on A1, what does a set of US made wheel, rotor and pulley blanks in those sizes cost? 500 USD max for the set, add on the machine time and chroming, there is plenty of profit left in 1650$ for these being US made , Pheonix being not that far from the supplier.

    It would cost more to ship them to China, machine the things and ship them back again.

    I did have the impression i was looking at Metalsport wheel designs and photos though, I had to double check it wasn’t the new trading name of that company.

    Hey Guy’s, how are you. This is Aaren. The answer to your question is yes they are made in america !! Completely Made all in the U.S.A. The wheels are 100% forged that are all purchased from a company in California that is well known, that everybody get’s their blanks from. Upon customers request the papers can be supplied on the blanks and finished product. The way we are able to cost the wheels like that is simple, it is a design that does not require much machining and also minimal polishing. we also order high quantity, so that the cost is low on all product ordered and our machine time because setup on the machine is minimal.

    We also work closely with our contractors that do our polishing, and plating with quantity we are able to get the cost down on that as well. Finally the sizes that are available are only offered in 16 X 3.5, or 18 X 3.5 for the stock application on most baggers. When i say that the wheels are tested by computer, that is what we do first off to make sure that we are not wasting our time on designing something that is going to be up for fatigue failure, once the design is done the prototype is sent out back east for final testing. That process has a lot of costs involved and that is why there is only one design currently available. Couture Wheels is set out to manufacture the highest quality wheels with the best customer service money can buy at an affordable price. Stay tuned and see some of the new wheels and designs that have never been done before, that should revolutionize the motorcycle wheel industry.

    My experience in the industry dates back to 1999, in the motorcycle wheel business. If anybody has any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 480-414-7711, or send me a Email to sales@couturewheels.com. I want to thank you all for your questions and concerns, and i hope you will all support us with our great quality wheels. For anybody that would like to see our operation, you can find pictures and a write up on our blog page at, http://www.couturewheels.com or http://couturewheels.wordpress.com. Thank you all again.!!

    Best Regards, Aaren Jenson, Couture Wheels

    I have been in the aftermarket business for over 25 years and have seen many companies come and go. But, seeing your blog on Couture Wheels really pissed me off. There are companies that innovate and those whothat imitate. Not only did Couture wheels copy several designs from other manufactures they stole their artwork to boot. Aaron of Couture Wheels was doing business and did the same thing he is doing now. and it’s ruining and undermining the business that has been soft for the past couple of years.

  10. 10 Ba Ba Gadush Jul 16th, 2010 at 11:11 am

    Aaron stated that testing his wheels were a great expense for him that he has only tested 1. That is hogwash basicly only cost between $250 to $400 dollars depending on how many different tests you do. One is radial fatige, Laterial fatige and impact. You have to destroy at least one wheel and tire. So come on that crap.

    Loony, Lonny Spiva of Metalsport Wheels.

    Lonny, I had no idea that you were such a photography expert. By the way the correct spelling of my name is Aaren. Anyhow i have no idea what you are talking about. If there are any questions or concerns about the wheels pics on my site, i think that you know as well as i do that it should be handled in a professional business manner rather than posting something on a blog. I have talked with you several times and no issue like that has ever been addressed, and furthermore you have known of me for some time.

    I would suggest next time before making any false accusations, i would hope that you would contact our corporate office or me directly and be professional. If you feel the need to do so the contact info is listed above. Thank you all again for questions and or comments.

    Regards, Aaren..Couture Wheels

    Aaren,

    I don’t think any one would have to be a professional photographer
    to tell that both are the some photo.

    lets let the public judge if they are the same photo.

    Hi guys… I don’t post on blogs often… maybe 3 times in my life??? But when I saw this I had to speak up for a couple reasons. First one being that I have had MANY products copied that I have hand made myself years ago… 2001-2006, that have been and ARE being copied right now by more than one name brand company. Pictures, and even descriptions word for word on their sites. I have also had people call, or email me and ask me if I buy these parts from “ABC” co. or whomever, and THEY are the ones that Knocked MY parts off. So, I said all this to say I have known Aaren for about 9 years now, and seen his work since I first got into the aftermarket business. I think some of the confusion comes in play because he has been around so long and worked with so many big names that people relate this wheel or that wheel to the company they first saw with it, but really they didn’t make the first ones… they just might have got the press for it. Example, I sell parts online, and to dealers… customer buys them from a dealer, not me..and builds his “Showbike”… showbike wins and gets put in a magazine.. he lists the names of the parts and who he “Thinks” makes them but gets it wrong. Happens all the time. No big deal. If you have worked for more than one company like Aaren has, and like I have as well… those companies ALWAYS take credit for your work. It’s to hard to fight all the companies that steal your designs or pictures.. I tried… but in the end, the people that matter KNOW who’s who! And I have seen these bad a$$ wheels come right from Aarens hands to mine years ago! I drove from Cali to AZ to pick them up in person many times. No Chine crap here, just an American trying to stay in the game and selling 1 base model design he can mass produce to draw in business. Smart tactic! ALL business! I have seen AND bought many wheels over the years from Aaren and they have ALL been top quality. No complaints about the wheels at all. I will end this “Book” by saying that we all have come on hard times now and then and we have all let down customers or friends one time or another. It’s really hard to throw stones at people trying to make a living. Simple fact… if you don’t like the wheel or the design.. Or the company, then don’t buy the freakin product! But sitting around talking trash doesn’t really help anybody.. I’m STEVEN HAMMER and “That’s MY 10 cents!”

    hammer this is not about you ans aaren’s love affair it’s about the guy copied designs from a company he used to work for and has been using photos of their products and other people too. The work that is aaren’s is the hotwheel nice name you could find that name in Weld Wheels old catalog funny thing. The wheel that he copied is a Chip Foose design and Chip has had that around for lots of years. Matter of fact that his most popular automotive design wheel, I think the world would believe a world re-known car and wheel designer over a guy you have known for several years selling you a couple of counterfeit designs. Please stay at the swap meets because you both aren’t main stream players anyway. Loony was right let the public decide.

  15. 15 HAMMER Jul 20th, 2010 at 11:32 am

    ba ba the ” doushe” is it? First off, no Love affair here.. just stating my thoughts. Unlike yourself I don’t swing both ways! Funny thing about blogs… You have people like yourself that like to make claims.. “25 years.. blah blah blah” but yet use a screen name and throw stones at others. Aaren stated his real name and is willing to take the shots good or bad.. Blogs help insecure people like yourself, run your mouth with no side affects. You say things on a post that you would never have the balls to say face to face to the people you slam. I don’t know what “mainstream” means to you, but my products are on cover bikes and Aarens as well. I don’t see “ba ba the doushe” on any cover or credits for anything at all except a few posts talking crap. so yes.. Let the public decide! see whose product they buy! That says it all! If they like the product and the price, they will buy it! As for the “Copy” thing.. you might as well start with Harley on that. Who made the first throttle grip HD? No, they copied it… who made the first…. we could go on and on all day with this back and forth and you would have your thoughts and others theirs. Rather than throw blows back and forth, why not just let the guy try to make a living? Or is the point of your post to make the statement that he is selling the wheels to cheap? If that’s the case just say it! It’s basic sales tactics 101 to draw in customers… so Ba ba ba BACK the … well you get my drift

  16. 16 HAMMER Jul 20th, 2010 at 11:38 am

    BTW I know i mispelled a few words… I tried to “Blend in” with the other great spellers here.. so Laugh a little… stop stressin’ on this petty BS lifes too short! Lets all make money!

  17. 17 ba ba gadush Jul 20th, 2010 at 12:26 pm

    Hammmer you talk pretty big for a little man I know more about you and Aaren and his late escapade with his sister and what he did to his father. But Aarens the the innocent one here come most people in our Arizona home town won’t do business with him because on Platinum Machine. And you little man with a small mine stick to your swapmeets and tell us how all your ex-partners screwed you. Because they tell another story. He can sale his wheels as cheap as he wants to,just do it on his own merit and change the designs at least 5% and shoot his own pictures. How come your so short and talk big on this blog.

  18. 18 ba ba gadush Jul 20th, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    I forgot why don’t you and Aaren get a room
