I want to replace my spoked wheels with cast wheels and tube less tires.
What front and back wheels will fit on my 2000 1500FI classic?
Will Nomad wheels fit? If so.. what years should I look for. I am looking for direct bolt on with no modifications needed.

Same here, Nomad seems to have dual front discs, I'm figuring the front end swap is more like it (forks + brakes). I was told that the rear from Nomad 1500 is a direct bolt-on, but I don't know how true that actually is.

What's more important to you guys about replacing the rim? The look of a cast rim, or the benefits of running tubeless? It it's looks you're after, then dust off your checkbook. You're gonna need it.:eek:

If all you're after is the tubeless tire aspect, there is a cheaper way. Download and read the file linked in my sig to see how I did the wheel conversion, with notes and pictures. I wrote that for a Suzuki VS1400 because that's what I was riding at the time, but it'll work on anything.
