What fits what?

I would like to try a 19 inches wheel on my -84 g/s. will a -76 R90s wheel fit? In the front!
Thanks,

You need an ST wheel. It's the hub that's the issue.

The spoke angle is all different so I don't see how you could do it easily

bollocks!

Looks like I'm stuck with the 17inch rear on the new project... and a spare 18inch akront.

Thanks Rob.

I'd happily swap that front g/s wheel of yours for the st wheel I have in my stash.

Why not just lace a 19" rim onto your G/S hub? It doesn't cost THAT much to undo if you want to go back. I think your only option for a straight up bolt on 19" front wheel is the R80ST and they don't come up very often at all.
