New Galaxy Wheel Added To Performance Machine Contour Collection

1galaxywheelpmA new wheel design from PM departing from a traditional mindset of design. The company started from a classic, elegant spoke design and pushed the boundaries of manufacturing capabilities to create a complex yet refined timeless design.

The balanced amount of contrast and detail creates a unique depth and illusion. From a distance the wheel gives the appearance of simplicity, but as you are drawn in closer the intricacy of the wheel is revealed.

Although this new Galaxy design wheel is cut from PM beefy Contour Collection series blanks, fat has been trimmed for a style intertwining thin spokes and a full round deep rim-lip cut, taking out weight where it counts the most for performance.

2galaxywheelpmAvailable in Chrome, Contrast Cut, Contrast Cut Platinum and Color Shop finishes. Tested in-house to JASO and TUV standards. . Matching Discs, Pulley and Super Gas Faceplate. Performance Machine.

    I like PM wheels, but what I’d really like to see is true performance wheels for cruisers, especially Victory. I chose Victory because of the exceptional performance potential and have outfitted mine with big power, performance shocks, and racing brakes. It’s freaking awesome to ride something as comfortable as a cruiser that still has thrilling performance. But when it comes to wheels all I can find is billet bling with some generic marketing references to strength and weight. Sport bike riders get real options with real data to back up those claims, I think there are enough of us cruiser hot-rod types to create a market for wheels like those that fit our bikes.

    BobS nailed it. Well said.

    I am not a Polaris and/or Victory dealer, so I do not share BobS’ (self-serving) interest, re the Vic – BUT,

    I absolutely agree re the data on aftermarket wheels. We need the US to take the lead here (as opposed to EU laws, the US have the means to initiate it, then it will spill over to the EU).

    Aftermarket wheel manufacturers must be legally obliged to supply the following figures (as a minimum). In short – to back up claims of weight, acceleration, braking, etc (over and above existing requirements – eg as set out by TUV over here).

    1. Total mass of the wheel as supplied (within a certain tolerance). I.o.w. you will never get a wheel that weighs more than a certain amount.

    2. Moment of Inertia [MOI] – to a common standard. This physics is slightly technical (but anybody who passed the 1st year of a mechanical engineering degree will have it covered). In practice though, it will allow you to compare different makes on a relative scale, representing the direct effect on acceleration and braking.

    The fact of the matter is: there are aftermarket wheel, marketed as “light weight”, that is in fact heavier than the OEM issue.

    BobS…..I am quite certain that PM can fit any of their wheel designs to your Victory, especially if it is a later model. You should contact PM direct.(800) 479-4037

    Sigfreed, I’m not a dealer of any brand, just an enthusiastic rider so I’m not sure where the “self serving” dig comes from. Appreciate what you’re saying though, you put it in words better than I could. Glennrock, I have attempted to contact Performance Machine in the past with no response. I know they make wheels to fit my bike, and I do like the looks of them. But, my mod priorities are performance first. I’m not going to drop 2500 (or a lot more) on a set of wheels if i can’t at least verify that I’m getting a performance improvement from the weight savings.

    Folks there’s a point being missed here. A couple of years back I asked a PM executive with whom I was discussing the aftermarket industry why they did not do to much in the way of Victory wheels at the time. The answer was that unlike Harley owners, Victory owners do not seek to change their bikes much but ride them as they rolled out of the showroom. Hard to argue with that logic. As for Sigfreed suggesting that the US should take the lead over the EU regarding standards, that boat sailed a long time ago.

    Noh2oh I second that
