The New Thriller Wheel

A new design to broaden your choice while choosing your new rims. Pickard USA just introduced the “Thriller” wheel featuring 12 directional spokes surfaced in 3D and joining seamlessly towards the hub.

The “Thriller” was designed to add movement and direction to your bike, even when sitting still. Versus a 2D design, a 3D surfacing technology throws off an abundance of light.

Pickard Wheel sizes range from 16-30 inches for all 2000 and up Harley-Davidson models.  For easy installation, all their wheels are designed to use stock wheel spacers.  Made in the USA. More information: at 972-231-1298 or visit .

    Too many wheels to choose from. I expect a return to simplicity to not distract from the overall bike lines.

    Just when you think you have finally found the nicest Wheel ever, someone goes and confuses me again! There are so many Dynamite Wheels and Wheel Manufacturers out there that will eventually kill the “Big Buck” that you have to pay for the Wheel. I would really hate to be cruising 80 mph with 800 lb. of Bike and 300 Lbs. of Rider and have the Rim colapse. Is there a Wheel Industry Standard rating on each Wheel? For instance all Tires have them, do Mag Wheel Manufacturers have to comply with a rating of some standard?.

    To: Bigalyts, yes there are standards for wheel manufacturing, although in the U.S. there are no requirements for aftermarket wheels to be tested. The two major standards are TUV and JASO. TUV is used in Europe and JASO is Japanese standard. Both of these have critical criteria and testing requirements which include radial load, torsional load, side load and impact. Many of the US aftermarket wheel manufactures don’t do physical testing on their wheels due to expense. Some rely on computer testing only (mistake). Several brands you see in the market don’t even do their own manufacturing, they just job shop the work. I work for Performance Machine and we are the only aftermarket wheel company (that I know of) in the U.S. that have their own in house testing equipment. PM is also TUV certified for quality. Even though we test our own wheels we send wheels to Germany to have TUV testing done and certified. Recently we had eight new designs tested and approved (cost $60,000.)

    Bigalyts, your right in being concerned about blasting down the road at 80mph and wonder if that shinny chrome wheel will come apart on you.. Crashing sucks. Buy your wheels from a reliable manufacture.
