I though about Woody's, but I specifically want aluminum wheels. These won't be used offroad either. I'll put the 21/18" wheels back on for that.

17" or 19/17" Aluminum 950 Adv. Wheels

Does anyone know of any aluminum wheels for the 950 Adventure that will let you run tubeless tires? I've got a 2004 950 Adventure I'd love to swap the spoked 21/18" wheels for aluminum wheels.
