New Street Wheels


Pretty excited this week - my new 17" street wheels arrived.
They are 9" on the front and 11" rear.
I ended up chosing Team III.
Just need to figure out what tyres to buy...

I really love my 15" wheels but the short answer is that I wanted to get some better brakes and can't fit them in my existing wheels.
I was looking at Hopper Stoppers that advertise that they can fit inside 15" wheels but as soon as I told them that they were 3 piece Halibrands, they said they wouldn't fit.
I also took an inside profile of my wheels and compared it to the drawings on the web site and that confirmed to me it was not going to work.
The next challenge is getting tyres to fit the wheels.
