Wheels for 2008 FE550? KTM compatibility?

I bought a 2008 FE550 recently and it came with a set of supermoto wheels and a set of nice Excel wheels in what the previous owner called "dual sport size" - 19" front and 17" rear diameters. Apparently he preferred the feel of these sizes compared to the stock wheels. I'm thinking I may want to do some rougher trails one day soon, and I'd prefer the stock-sized wheels for that.

Did the 70-degree Husabergs share the same wheels as the 2000-2008 models? How about the earlier bikes?

I hear some KTM wheels may work. Which ones would be a direct fit?

Any chance someone would want to trade my Excel wheels (with rubber) for a set of stock wheels (with rubber)?

Thanks for your input!

What condition are the 19:17 wheels in?

I might be interested, I might have to chip in a few bucks to make it a fair trade?

Have 21/18 black anodized excel wheels off a 2005 Husaberg. Have a few tire change scratches I them, but otherwise in good shape.

Front tire is a Pirelli MXMH with a couple rides on it. Rear is worn out,

It's KTM's 2003 and up I think that uses the same 26mm front axle.

Tires are Mitas E09 rear in 130/80-17 and Pirelli Scorpion Rally front in 110/80-19. Both have pretty good life remaining. I'll see about shipping costs and what it would be worth to replace that worn rear, but I'm down for a swap.

Hi folks, I'm asking basically the same question at the moment - just wondering if you got sorted with enduro wheels to replace the SM wheels? I have an '08 FE550 with 17" SM wheels, and looking to get enduro wheels to go with them.

Cheers!

I'm still looking for a swap. If you wanted to trade me your SM wheels, I think I know someone locally who would trade those for the dirt wheels I'm looking for. What do you say?
