Front wheel does fit in there. You then need a shit load of time to built the right spacers (it is harder than you think). Forget about the two brake rotors. So fitting the wheel in there is do-able but its going to be a little bit of a nightmare to do.
Rear wheel, just forget about it...
Just my opinion here so feel free to listen to other people...
You should go with the cheap Warp9. Plug and play...
Hope that help mate...

Unless you can do some basic machining and get the wheels cheap, it would be a better deal to just buy a set of rims. Have you considered an extra set of standard rims with street tires on them? I have done that on a few dirt bikes and it's pretty fun. Much cheaper than supermoto, especially if you're commuting most of the time. Still good for riding the twisties on the weekend too.

I haven't been able to find the Honda 250cc wheels on ebay, but the info is helpful. I'm still researching, but the front wheel seems pretty simple using CBR wheels if they are under 4" wide and "maybe" the rear if 4.5" or less wide. I don't know where to get the specs for the hub dimensions for the various years & models....yet.
Anybody have a link to that info?
I'm hoping to get a SuMo wheel setup for under $500, including tires. Looks "do-able" if I can get the wheels & drive hub cheap enough. I'd like to use my stock calipers, but may not be strong enough. We'll see.
