Source for Carrozzeria Wheels?

Hey Racers... I'm looking for a couple of recommendations for a Carrozzeria dealer that you've worked with. Can you help?

I think Motorcycles Unlimited can get them, though I prefer marchesini

Either way I vote for white

Not sure I'm getting them yet. Just interested in learning more about them. I think they make a better aluminum wheel than marchesini, and there is no way that I'd pay all those dollars for the magnesium marchesini.

Coming from someone that works with wheels quite a bit, I can tell you that I have seen more mis-machined Carrozzeria than any other brand out there. Maybe the newer stuff has better QC. I do like the anodized finishes on the Carrozzeria better than the powdercoat finishes on the marchesini

Mis-machined? That's a little scary. Does the anodized finish hold up as well as powdercoated finished?

By mis-machined I mean the diameter at the center of the rim, on the inside is too large. Thus not allowing the tire to come in far enough for the other side of the tire to pass over the rim. Not much, but enough to make changing a tire a PITA.

IMHO the anodized finish is more duarable.

Anodizing is much more durable. It is a process that hardens the surface of the material.

When I used to hang on the ZZR forums, the only wheel available for that bike was the Carozzeria. Many of the guys bought them. Lots of small problems with incorrect bushings, fitment issues, etc. They always managed to get it worked out but just never seemed to be an easy 1st install.

Send a message via Yahoo to jodyhudson
the ones we put on my buddies motard went on with no fitment problems and no tire mounting issues. the bushings for the sprocket carrier lasted longer than the previous marchesinis i had in 2004.

You got a pic of that Blade? I'd love to see it.


Maxgs, I've sent along the info. They're coming out with a newer lighter product; I had him price those as well. I'll let you know soon, sir.

I had a black set I ran in the Superbike class when I was racing my Kawi 636. I loved them and they were super-durable. When I have the extra coin, I'm probably going to pick up another set.
