does anyone know of a us dealer for real minilite wheels. i am looking for a pair of 7 by 15 for the rear axle of my bn6. the last set of minilite wheels i bought from ah spares...but they do not carry the 7 by 15 size. i called the number for minilite usa but have not had any return calls. thanks for any help... note! I do have aluminum rear fenders with flares that will accommodate 7 inch wide wheels.

Re: minilite wheels

Give JBW wheels in the UK a look. They have minilight in 7 X 15. I bought a set for my Bugeye (5X13). Not in the US but delivery form the UK was very quick

Re: minilite wheels

I ordered the fronts from ah spares yesterday and I am waiting on a response from minilite in England for the rears. I need a custom offset for the rear of my bn6 for 15 by 7s. thanks for the link to jbw.

Re: minilite wheels

I ordered the fronts from ah spares and the rears direct from minilite in England. the rears are 15 by 7 with a 6mm negative offset. I do have aluminum rear fenders with a small flare. I thought about 8s but decided againt that width. thanks for the input.
