Other options between? Recommendation for a 60/40 road/street rider. Thinking the $270 is good for me here. the other option is to go with a 2.50x19,,which will work REALLY well on road and is still more than doable on your fire-roads,,,,circa $410with upgrade to ss spokes n nipples/superlace..AND for an extra $99 can be sealed....now you are in the bailiwick of the most common dual sport rim/wheel n tire combination around,,you 'll have a plethora of dual-sport tires to choose from,,,braking improved and lowers seat heigght 1/2 inchall around street riding will be a JOY

Rear: Just to clarify here - Is the $99 to convert my rear rim to tubless?
Is that sealing my nipples and if so is it study enough for off road?

Or is that an 18" rim too?...i can tell you are an optimist

If no, then how much for the 18" rim laced onto my hub -circa $400

keep in mind I'd still want it tubless no problem add $99

and which option is better or worse?well,,,you are at the crossroads of trading off over here,,,if ya want tubeless you can't use rim locks and really low tire pressures and vice /versa,,,most people opt for tubeless over super low tire pressures that necessitate the need for rim-locks
PS..if ya go with a 19''up front ,,,you could just stay with your 17 rear,,get it trued up circa $55 and seal it for $99.... doing a 60/40 ride split would work with this provided the 40 is geared to fire-roads...remember people take their 19/17 oem shod wheels in the roughest of terrain..ya just can't go too fast!!!

Moto Guzzi Stelvio 4-1/4" rear rim

Really like the Stelvio but it's rear rim is 5-1/2"'s wide and could not get a good gravel road tire on it. Sent it off to Woody's to get a 4-1/4" installed. Talked to Zack today, it's quite a process. Custom drilled Excel 36 spoke rim, special ordered spokes because of hub spoke angle and on top of it all they have to anodize the rim black. Super lace, all SS spokes and nipples and a seal job. All for under $700.00. These guys are the best man! Will post pictures when I get it back wearing a TKC 80

Hi Woody

Regarding the MEGAMOTO. in order to not damage the precious stock blue cast wheels when riding some dirt ..

I am looking for:

A front 17" black tubeless spoked rim that allows to fit on the hub two 320 discs. and that leaves space to the 4 piston stock calipers.

Could you use the rim and spokes from the BMW supermoto front 17" wheel for the HP2 Enduro?
I am asking this to optimize costs in case of buying a BMW SuperMoto set for the HP2 enduro. As soon as i am planning to use a rear 17" black tubeless spoked wheel for the HP2 Enduro that allows up to 160 rear tire.

If not possible to use the HP2 Enduro supermoto front rim, would you use a GS1200 front spoked hub taken from its 19" stock wheel?
then i will use a rear 17" tubeless spoked wheel coming from a GS1200.

this setup will use avon distanzia 120/70/17 tires ..rear 160/60/17, do not need wider rear rim for a 180.

Thank you very much.

Remember my invitation to Spain still stands

Could you use the rim and spokes from the BMW supermoto front 17" wheel for the HP2 Enduro?yes if we use any oem hub off a R1200GS or GSA,,,you will need a set of adapter nipples,,,a better stronger more aesthetic alternative would be to use a set of my Monzter spokes and redrill the rim accordingly,,,it can be sealed for tubeless too

I'm going to do a 18" rear conversion on my F800GS. You recommended a 2.5" width. I'm going to want to use a more road oriented tire 80% of the time. What would be the largest size I could use easily on the 2.5" rim. I was thinking a 3.5 would be better for me to running a 140/80. Thoughts?

straightening bent rims..95% success rate....

well Rapid Dog if anyone has taken on stuff like this and made it usable again your're talking to him,,,,

are those Dirt-Stars???,,7000 series is tougher than the 6000series to straighten,,the rim need to be partially unlaced in order to be able to do the straightening,,,hey ,,,its junk now so all we can do is see what happens,,if it doesn't work we do not charge,,,we'll just install another hoop new or used got everything from patching to perfection

FYI,,,those dents look like $100-120 to straighten and true..

NOTE!!!! when dented like that PLEASE do not hammer on them,,it invariably leads to the rims cracking ...thus necessitating welding etc

optimal rim combo for F800GS 50/50 dual sport use

the 2.5 width is optimal for mostly dirt oriented use,,with the proper tires it works finon the street,,if you're on the street more than the dirt we use a 3.5 x18..it's narrower than the 4.25 which can bend too easy sticking way out to the left/right of center-line...it works better on the the 140/70 lower profile...

remember the lower the profile the stiffer the tire will be on the road,,ie the sidewalls are almost vertical so they don't flex nor want to distort and tuck under the main thread.

herre's a tire fitment chart link to my website..peruse it and notice the correlation between aspect ratio and rim width

later,
woody

this maybe the wrong place to ask but what sizes of tires will work on a stock 2006 KLX250s?
