Wheel rim sizes?
« on: 22.09. 2012 21:36 »
Hi all,
What was the original fitment width WM1 or WM2  for the front wheel on a RGS model ?  (190mm hub)
I know the late Gold Stars had WM1 fronts

I think that you will find they were WM2.

Hi Trev,
Thanks for that, its as I suspected,
Its just that I spotted a wheel with Dunlop WM1 rim on fleabay
A pair of Dunlop flanged Alloy rims, with the front to suit an eight inch single sided wheel went for
