Changing from spoke wheels to cast wheels
« on: August 11, 2017, 08:14:31 am »
Hi guys, I have a Ducati scrambler urban Enduro with the standard spoke wheels. I want to change to cast wheels mainly because I prefer tubeless tyres. What options are there other than buying original wheels from the dealer (R30k) :o
I have no idea how to establish compatibility with other wheels that may fit.

If you do any gravel or dirt riding.....do not put on cast rims...when you hit something they do no bend...they break.
Just saying
