Dauntless GS Rig Wheels
I want to pick up a set of steel wheels for my Dauntless GS rig. They are car wheels and the tires are 165/80 R15. Does anyone know what the wheel size and bolt pattern are?
Inmate Zipper is an excellent place to start, my best advice is decide how you will use your rig and proceed.DB
Most of the GS rigs I've seen use one-piece alloy wheels.
The wheel I use on my GS rig is 15" x 4", 4 x 4.25 bolt pattern, with 1-3/4" backspace. 60 degree conical seats. 2.9" center hub. Mine's got a negative offset of 19mm but I use one of DMC's adapters. My wheel was supplied by DMC and was one of three styles they offer. But all three are alloy. Mine looks like this--
Recently, a new guy on here posted up pics of his GS rig from Finland and he has a 15" x 6" wheel! I think he sourced it from EZS. I contacted his sidecar builder in Germany and they said they have used 6" wheels on GS rigs many times and have no problem with them even though the centerline is obviously not in line with the centerline of the bike. No unusual wear on the final drive. Here's the only pic I could find--
There's another thread on page 1 where Boxer Metal is whipping up a GS Enduro rig with an EML rear wheel. Pic--
That EML wheel looks like it might be the same as the EZS wheel. Another option is offered by Boxer Metal over on the Vendors page. He'll take your BMW hub and lace it to a 15" car rim. No adapter needed!
So I guess there's more than one way to skin that cat.
Drone - I think the info you provided is exactly what is was after. Thank you!
The alloy wheels are ok (even if they are a bit plain). Unfortunately the mag-chloride they use to melt snow here is already taking it's toll on them. I want to hunt down some inexpensive steel or powder coated wheels to use with a more aggressive, softer compound, tire in the winter.
