Got finished checking valve clearance and decided to dive into my first wheel lacing. So took pics and untied my OEM rims and began lacing up my Excel Blackskees with buchanan SS spokes and nips. Front went great :applause: then the rear started lookin funny.:cool: So started comparing olds and news. Went to a 2.50 on the back and it turns out that the drop center is deeper than the 2.15. Buchanan sent the 'kit' and didn't account for the deeper drop center so gotta send the laces back to be trimmed....LESSON 8,453 LEARNED:foul: ...size really does matter
