I would like to keep my 5.50 x 17 intact for road work so I googled 09 Stelvio rear hub and ended up talking to Curtis Harper at Harpers Moto Guzzi in K.C. He said that he had just went through this same inquiry last week and ended up being able to order an entire rear wheel 4.25 x 17 from the warehouse for around $370.00 He is going to call me back tomorrow when the Guzzi parts site comes back up, to check availability. Thats a pretty good deal. Last time I looked I think the price on Guzzitech was over $1000.00 for a new rear wheel.

A quick check of AF1 Racing shows the Behr 4.25 x 17 is $437.99 (part #883433 for Stelvio NTX). By comparison, the 5.5 x 17 for the '09 Stelvio (part # 978849) is listed at $787.99, which seems about right. $370 seems like a really good deal.....
