After all that work, I was able to get the rear rim assembled back the way I purchased it, and adjusted the offset to where I needed it to clear the chain.
Getting the tire warmers on is a bit of a chore because of how little clearance there is. Kinda wish I'd thought that through a little better....
Overall, I really like the results! The white rims are EXACTLY what this bike needed, IMHO.
The downside is that the rear tire loses air because the bead isn't seated properly, and I think I stripped out both of the aluminum valve stems I put in place. I was dorking with tire pressure all day. I'd come back to the bike after sitting for an hour, and the rear was dead flat. Ah well, the project continues.
