I have a 1985 xr600r with a 17inch rear wheel and drum brake can i change it to an 18inch to open up more tyre choice. The main things been can i do it on the standered swingarm ( possible fitting disc brake ) or would it be easier to change arm. Another option been lacing an 18inch rim to standered hub obviousley only if the 18inch would clear standered swingarm any help would be great thanks:thumbsup:

Try to find a 88 rear wheel. They were drum brake til 90. Then Honda went to disc rear 91 on. 88 was the first year they went to an 18" rear wheel. I think this will be easier to do.
