Do tell... How'd ya manage both?
NO it is not!!!
we can rebuid many kinds / versions of wheels on the OEM hubs..they just won't be as light that way.....AND we may have some good used take -off rims floating around,,,
send me some pics and discuss your big vision...i'll help ya make it come true..after all ,,that's a forte of mine

What kind of tires will work for two up touring on the 21/18 setup, with the 2.50 wide rear?? I don't want to give up anything off road , but still be able to travel with my wife.
Are there any more street oriented tires available for this narrow rear rim, that can hold up?? I don't want to end up with a destroyed rear , or worse.
Would a 140/80 be a safe bet for this task??
Thanks in advance.
there's several tires available,,,and a 140/80 is a safe bet,,,
here's a few ""
1,,continental Trail attack,,has a more street oriented thread pattern 85% on road /15% off-road
2,,Metzler Karoo 3 ,,,a little more knobs newer higher mileage compound
3,,Pirelli Scorpion Rally,, and MT-21 Rallycross
Thanks Woody, I appreciate that.
I realize this is boring compared to all of the off-roaders here, but...
I've got a 2012 S10, and I'm interested in lighter wheels, in the stock sizes. Can I realize any significant weight savings using the stock OEM hubs? Would the wheels still be tubeless? Is there a spokes-don't-fall-off-as-often option?
Ballpark $$ involved? Thanks!
Using the stock hubs, there isn't a whole lot of weight to be saved. That being said, we can make wheels with Excel rims and stainless spokes/nipples that are tubeless. The big weight saver that you could do is to go to our Superlite hub on the front. This wheel requires KTM rotors, which we fit with Galfer floating rotors. To build this wheel you would be looking at $1665 + ship. We do not have a hub that works on the rear, so your wheels would not match. However, the weight savings is significant (circa 5lbs)
I appreciate the info for sure. If you guys ever decide to do a rear hub, I might be convinced to go for a set. Any chance of that?
We did look into it at one time. The issue with the rear hub is the magnetic pick-up for the speed sensor. There really isn't a good way for us to duplicate that. Also, interest really hasn't been that high for this model. The front was easy to do, because it is a spin-off of our Superlite hub for the R1200GS.
