Has anyone ever put an 18 rim on an 87 rear hub? There's not a very good selection of tires for the 17s, and I can't find a paddle tire at all. I was thinking I could either find a rear wheel off a 88, or buy a 36 hole Kawasaki rim and have it laced up. What length spokes would I need to do this? Is it even feasible?

17" paddles


edit: You will need to bring them a carcass with a good bead on it. Turn around is about two weeks.
