More info on RC51 wheels for 929 (I read the old threads)

So after reading the old threads and doing a lot of research, it looks like with new bearings, the wheel should mount up. Does anyone know if there were any other problems other than the axle? Did the discs and other hardwear mount up?

Don't have an answer for you, but I do know that the RC wheels are appreciably heavier than the 929 3 spoke units. Why would you want to do this?

I'm not a racer. Just wanted a fun project. I got it all figured out. For all those that search after me, with all the 929 hardware on the RC rim, all you need are 2 2mm spacers.

Good to know. Do you mean the rotors bolt right up to the RC wheels as well as the rear caliper alignment being right on?

That's how it looks. I finally found 3 people who had done the conversion, and that's what they're telling me. I'll be picking up the RC wheels hopefully this weekend. I'll make sure to document any problem spots and take some pics.
