Anywhere I can buy a 17/18 wheel ready to fit?

Beitrag von ItchyMike » Mi Nov 20, 2019 2:34 pm

Hi, guys! New user here.

I recently got a NX250 in good condition, but I am facing the problem of being limited in my tire size choice in the 16 rear wheel.

I was wondering if you know of any place where I can buy a ready to fit 17 or 18 wheel for my NX250, or eventually a front/rear wheel set to match the size difference ( or someone who does this service ). Although I can do some work in the bike myself, I do not have the skills to accomplish such a task.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the board,
we already got someone from Portugal around here viewtopic.php?f=20&t=721&p=5016#p5016
and Pedro from Spain viewtopic.php?f=1&t=484&p=3154#p3154

Here is some information about what type of wheels might fit viewtopic.php?f=20&t=864&p=6379#p6379
What kind of driving have you got in your mind? For mild off-road riding it is sufficient to use a 100/90-19 front wheel (I don’t know about the legal) and a 17’’ wheel in the rear. As mentionend, a rear wheel of the XL350R will fit plug and play, but these are rare and hard to find. If you want I can keep my eyes open.
Other option: any professional wheel builder can lace a 17’’ rim with new spokes to a NX250 hub. But that’s expensive, with a new rim we are talking about 300€.

Cheers, Michael

Olá Itchy,

You can find used parts on sites like Olx and Custo Justo...
Tires for that bike are not hard to find (Bridgestone Trail Wing), better, easier and less expensive than search for 17 or 18... and beeing ilegal!

Any question, feel free to ask by pm

Hi!

Thank you all for the suggestions.

I don't want to do anything too extreme, just a few sight seeing relaxed offroad short rides , I am not too worried about having a different tire/rim size for this purpose, I am pretty sure there's a lot other more important things for authorities to worry about. So, I will take the risk on this one.

I will check the XL350 wheel then! :-)

The new Bridgestone Adventurecross AX41 will be available 2020 in 90/100-19 and 120/90-16 viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1299. I already tested a front tire in 100/90-19 and it’s one of the best dual purpose tires I`ve ever had. Surprisingly stable and neutral on road but it’s also a breeze offroad. Way better than for instance a Continental TKC80 or the old Michelin T63.
