For my understanding- can you put the 5.5" rear rim on the NTX or are you stuck with the 4.5"?

Is this a possibility?

Thanks!

I'd guess that you could put the wider wheel on, but I don't know for sure. Regardless, there are still plenty of good tires in the narrower size. What I'd be more concerned about is the 19" front wheel; I haven't found any sport tires (like the Pilot Power) in that size at all.

EDIT: Does anyone have both a Norge and a Stelvio? Maybe we'll get lucky and both wheels will swap right over.
