Relacing a 17 inch rear wheel

Recommended Posts

I have a spare 17 inch rear wheel for my 1990 xr200r. is it possible to relace it to 18inch? or do i need to find a late 80' xr250 rim to do the swap? id like to go to trials tire but im unable to find any real trials tires for the 17.

You can lace up a 18" wheel no problem.  You will need the rim and longer spokes to do it.  Unless you can find the parts pretty cheap it is usually cheaper to find the correct xr250 wheel complete.

   86-89 XR250 uses the same rear hub and an 18" rim. the spokes from those years are exactly the right length. The 250 wheels use a 2.15 wide rim, the 200's use a 1.85.
