Today I was changed the rear tire on my old 03 klx 110 that I've owned for 15 years and ridden countless hours. The rigid tire gave me a lot of trouble to the point where I noticed I bent the edge of the rim. Wondering how this could be possible considering I used to be a tire mounter at a local shop. I realized the rim is rusted from inside out. The inside is partially hollowed and the side that faces the tube is entirely rusted. Although I plan on using for a bit longer I've decided to start searching for a new rim or entire wheel. The oem wheels on ebay run upwards of $500 for a used one. Wondering if anyone has had luck with nock off wheels? Or thinking maybe buy a new rim and lace myself and have a local shop finalize to make true? Just looking for a feasible option.
