EDIT: Does anyone have both a Norge and a Stelvio? Maybe we'll get lucky and both wheels will swap right over.
I have to wonder why a person would want a Stelvio with sportsbike rubber, but since some of the street-oriented Adventure-Styled bikes come that way, there must be a market for it.

I wouldn't doubt that swapping a 17 from another CARC Guzzi would be easy. you might pose the question on the GuzziTech forums and find someone who has already done it...
