Hello from Greece. I have a F800GS and would like to change the front with a laced rim (I have the original hub) and placing a 19x2.50 rim.
I have found some in used condition, but I am not sure how can they be laced with the Bmw hub.
19x2.50 are from the older F650 (needs painting) and the same dimension is from a Suzuki Freewind or Aprilia Pegaso (these have almost identical color as the 21' Behr rim). What spokes/nipples would I need? is this possible?
I wish my budget wasnt so low in order to buy a ready wheel from you but...
Thanking you in advance!

The 19 x 2.5 from the F650GS won't work with the F800GS hub without drilling/countersinking to the rim to get the angles to work correctly on the nipples.

If you can drill/countersink the rim it will work no problem, we could set you up with a used rim and spoke kit for your oem hub if you are having issues finding anything locally.

Email us at woodyswheelworks@gmail.com if you would like more info.

Thanks Zach
