You can not take them apart and back together. They had a special set up at the factory. The centers are also different. Don't want you to kill yourself.Wondering if anyone can confirm whether a 16” rear wheel from a 1982 GL1100 Goldwing would bolt right onto a 1982 CX500?
The wheels looks identical, however the GL wheel 3” wide (instead of the stock 2.5”).
What is the advantage of fitting the 17" wheel on a CX? Is it that a radial tire can be used? Sounds to me to be more trouble than it is worth. Just my opinion.Whatever width tire you fit, you will want to ensure that the tire does not interfere with the swingarm. I have not heard of this conversion before. The CX turbo models, which I am more familiar with could barely accept one size larger tire width than stock as anything larger than that will certainly rub the swingarm.
