Question Wheel rim profile

At one time I had measurements of different wheel rim profiles. Darned if I can find that info now!
I'm planning on getting a BMW R1200C cast rear wheel, 15" x 4", this would bolt right on my K.
I'm aware that the 15" bike rim is larger than the 15" car rim. I need the car rim measurements to get the bike wheel machined to the proper size.
If anyone has a lead on an R1200C wheel, let me know.
Thanks

Thank you Luke, that's what I was looking for. The diameter is the killer on the 15" rim as it has been known to damage the beads.
Once I get a wheel, I'll see how much material there is for reshaping the seat. Not sure that is too critical as the 195/45-17 on the stock 17" rim has no issue with seating and sealing, the tire is just too short, and a bit wide at the swingarm brace.

This (15" car 14.968" bike 15.08") is the main importance.

Yes Sir. I figure removing .056 diameter from the bead seat and the bead hump should save the bead cords from being destroyed. May remove a bit of the bead hump to widen the seat if there is enough material.

Still have to locate a wheel.

Yeah thanks, I saw that one, he's had it for a while. I may call him during the week and make an offer.

Have you done the math on a used 15x4 Centerline and an adapter ?

Are you taking the .056 off the rim or farming that out ?

No, I've not yet priced that out, I really do have to call Claude.
I do like the fact that wheel is a direct bolt on.
I'll have to farm out the machining, I'm not that precise with an angle grinder......

If you were closer I'd knock one out at cost for you.

Thanks, I do appreciate the offer. You don't happen to be visiting Disney World with the Leprechauns in the near future, do you?
Looks like the centerline wheels are pretty reasonable, I'll get with Claude next week.

Funny you should say that.

All BS aside, it would be the way to go if you are into it that far $ wise with the bm' rim and machining.

If you farm the adapter out to a local machinist buddy, your existing rim will give them all the dimensions they need. They'll just need to know the backspacing of the new rim to determine how wide to make it. They'll also need a 60 degree cutter to do the cone washer seats.

Lukes idea is way better than that cruiser wheel if the irrepressible Stroker's around he would should have enough info to crank out a wheel or adapter.DB
