WOOT! New rims have arrived!!

bought the '95 "mag" rims to replace my spoked ones and UPS just brought them to my door.

now to remove the bearings etc ... and send them off for chroming. Not a single place in the entire state of Oklahoma would do the job so they hafta be sent off to Corpus Christie.

But I consider it worth the expense. When these bad boys are done they will look so good that ALL of you will wish you'd done the same.

Is this bike able to run two rears? IE run rears on the rears as well as rears on the front. And just run a fat tire on the front the same as the rear? Like a 140/90/15? or possibly a thinner tread width high profile?

Not a good idea to ever run rear tires on the front or vise versa.The front rim is a lot narrower on the front than the rear.I personally wouldn't run any wider than a 110/90-19 on the front.I do run a 150/90-15 on the rear.

What are the specs on the wheels?

Judging by the 140 tread width, they're roughly a 5" wide wheel in the back? 4" in the front?
