Hey guys. I have a 2011 250R (White/Red/Black). I am trying to shop around for some aftermarket wheels.

1. Where are some good places to look? I know I can search but I wanted to see if there was anyone who had experiences with certain companies.

What is the max size that you can put on for the rear without it rubbing? Again I know I can search but Id like experiences.

Thanks guys.

Sportisi Moto USA Sportisimoto USA has a 4.5" wheel that is a direct bolt on. However I emailed Matt who is their USA guy, and he quoted me like $500 or something shipped. Are you talking about width or diameter? I assume you want a wider tire, you can fit a 150 with little-no problem. Some people have even put a 160. It's all personal preference.

I am looking more for width.

I use to work in a wheel warehouse for Shelby mustangs and I know shipping isnt that much. Even 4 wheels to Switzerland was less than 200.

This is exactly what Im looking to do. Remove all decals for all white. Then gold accents, such as levers and wheels.

It was $570 shipped to me. Thats not just the shipping. Thats also the cost of the wheel.

They make the 4.5" wheel, the Ninja comes stock with a 3.5" wheel. No idea what the maximum width tire would be. although I would bet it wouldn't be more than a 160. Imo I can't justify spending that amount just for looks. If you want a wide rear tire, you bought the wrong bike bud, just sayin.

Ahh got ya on the price. Thanks.

Has anyone ever painted the wheels that came on the bike. That would be easier and cheaper.

I dont plan on getting a really wide tire but when I have to replace it I will go wider.
