I have ran across some used once black excel wheels with tires with new tires for $600.  I feel like thats a heck of a deal for the wheels and tires.  They came off a 2015 yz450f and I have a 08.  Does anyone know if they will fit???

I could sell you a set that does fit, same Excel rims off a 2015 YZ450F, powerdercoated candy blue hubs for $550.

Or, buy the wheels and I will trade you hubs. I can use the 15 hubs, you could use my hubs.

15 hubs have a larger diameter then older hubs so they will not fit your WR.

Yes, blacks Excels with blue hubs. No tires, excellent shape...

No, they were not the same diameters.  The axle diameters are the same, but the WR's have an 18" rim on the rear.  There is also the problem of the speedo drive, which cannot be adapted to the YZ front hub, even though the wheel will fit the bike if a YZ right side spacer is used.

Ah.  Then why, in post 6, did you say the wheel would not fit his WR?  :cool:

Nope.  Both axles are bigger than those in your '08.  At the rear, there is no standard cartridge ball bearing that can be substituted to convert to the smaller 22mm axle.  The most reasonable approach, IMO, would be to machine a set of sleeves to install the '08 bearings into the hub.   Not sure how the front hub measures out, but it's a different hub than yours uses.
