Just bought a sandblaster and started blasting a front wheel to see how it goes. Looks like itís going to do the job fairly well

So I did some more blasting today and found some rust holes in the rim. Iím now thinking of getting some new rims and spokes from AliExpress which might be 300 clams or so. Iím not sure what size to go for. I believe the front is 1.6 x 18 and the rear is 1.85 x 18. I would like fatter for looks but also for cornering. Iím more a fan of the corners than straight line speed. Color combo will be black rim, stainless spokes and a black hub. Does anyone know what is reasonable to upgrade the size to? Is 2.15 front and 3.00 back too big? Thanks. Oh and here is a photo of the rims. Aluminium cheapies

I may have spoke before I really thought this through. 3.00x18 is really big. Alternatively I can get 2.15x18 for the front and back. Not sure if thatís ok for the front though 🤷‍♂️

Depends what tire size you want.
I wouldnít go over 100mm in the front, or 120 in the back.
To wide makes it harder to push into corners, not as fun as a bike that can just be tipped in.
Hereís a rim size cheat sheet
 


2.15 in the front and a 3 in the rear should be okay.

I'm running 2.1 / 100 front and 2.5 / 110 rear.. I could fit a 120 fear but dont want to affect the handling.

It looks ok..

So front will be 2.15x18 with 100/90 tyre.
Rear will be 3.00x18 with 120/90 tyre. Also think Iím going with the Pirelli sport demon. I hope this works out ok. Now I need to measure the existing spokes and then order it all and stop procrastinating about the other jobs I have to do

Looks good! I canít seem to find a 2.5x18 for the right price so I stepped up a size. Finger crossed it will be ok. Hopefully I can find a 2.5 rim and I will do what you have done
