Well first off if it going to a 250 it doesn't matter cause your stock rim is gonna get cut up n modified....

When u get ur 250 wheel you can says pay xtra $$ for the blacked out wheel...

The stock midnight wheels are hard to come by...

I had my midnight wheel modified and than just rattle can sprayed it black...

If you are looking for new aftermarket wheels there will be limited options. There were some on ebay a while back. If you comment on a few more threads to get your post count up to 10 then use the google search at the top for aftermarket wheels.

I was just thinking about getting the stock rim cut. Do I need to get the 260 swing arm kit for the 250 tire?

Exactly look up Kyle NV as he is the man that does this.

Also like the others said you will have to paint or powder coat the rim after they finish widening the stock one.

There's NO need to spend $$ on a black wheel cause it's gonna get cut up..
Save the $$$ for the wheel widening...

Swing arm mod

Hi guys, new to this forum. Just acquired a 99 Wildstar that has had a bit of butchery in it's lifetime! I am needing to fit a bigger rear wheel too. Are there any options in the UK for this?

The Wildstar is the Road Star and has different construction. I see some other posts here where some have clarified for you.

My friend just bought a $1000 midnight warrior which is in my garage. the owner couldnt get the bike to run so my friend dropped it off at my place. I got it running but now we dont know if he is going to part the bike out or if hes gna keep it since i got it running. It has the wheels you are looking for so ill ask for you if he wants to get rid of them or not.

heres the video of the bike with the rims on it!

Is it possible to pull a stock swingarm off a Raider and go with a 240. If that is possible i would definitely be interested... Thanks in advance

Could be wrong.

YEP! I did the same thing and then found a "buegler" pin stripping tool on craigslist and painted on the red pin stripe.

I used Dupli-color High Gloss Black for the rim and "Hot Shot red" for the pin stripe, then cover the whole thing with Dupli-color clear coat..

Cool thing everytime I get my car tire changed out and the guy at Pep Boys scratches my rim I just touch it up with a sharpie.
