Default Solid mag wheels??

I was thinking about getting a set of solid center line mags to replace my nine point mags on my sporty. Is anyone running this type of set up? If so do you have any pics? Is there any reason why I shouldn't run solid mags? Basically what are your thoughts on running solid mags on a sporty.

Thanks in advance for your time and help,

Drawbacks are weight and sidewinds. They look cool, if you're into the chunky look. I think I'd go with aluminum rims and stainless spokes if I were making a change on my bike. That seems to fit the traditional Sportster image better.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
