the weight loss gains get snubbed out a bit by not only going from the 2.5x17 oem rim to a larger stronger 2.5x18'' excel,,,,with a slightly larger rolling diameter as well as a huge increase in available dirt rubber choices,,,
but also the addition of 2 rim-locks that enhance your ability to get power to the ground over a much larger tire pressure range than the oem tubeless scenario!!!!!

you get eye candy
and mo strength
