Question An Education on Boost Wheels...

Hoping one of you might be able to clarify a point I'm confused on:

Just bought a set of Boost wheels for my (relatively) new 95' D90, and expected them to be 16" wheels, as I've commonly seen posted on the forum. These measure: 17 1/4" x 8.

Are there two different variants of Boost wheels on the market? (i.e- Euro D90/110 vs. NA Disco)?

Thanks..!!

Ross

You are measuring them wrong, they are 16x7 as measured at the bead, not the outer edges.

Kevin....great news; glad to hear that it was "user error"! You learn something new every day... I was concerned that I had bought the wrong damn wheels.
