I read somewhere here a discussion on Thailand rims ! Now I cant find it , has anyone used or have any information on them ? The price would suggest they are a lower quality , but I don't know it could be just a lower cost manufacturing issue , if anyone can shed some light on this I'll be happy as that little pig .

I did ask one seller a question regarding contention the st and from memory he said with a small modification they should fit, this would mean they don't fit the st and I backed out buying them.

Thanks TTB , They looked ok , so I emailed the company and said I have a1981 XT H , he replied and said " they are made to fit that model , but if you require spokes set I would need to give exact spoke size " I would have thought they should know that information . Anyway , I'll keep looking .

Hey Buba ! Where are you looking to see XT rims ? Yamaha Australia site says product unavailable , this search for rims is sending me a little bit crazy . A bike is just not a bike without wheels .......
