Greetings fellow Ducatistas,
I own a 96 900 ss/cr and my rear tire needs replacing but I want to go to a 180 tire vs. replacing my current 160. Problem is the ss/cr comes with a 4.5 rim, while the ss/sp comes with a 5.5 rim.
I called Ducati dealer here in Arizona, and the parts guy tells that the swingarm will have to be changed as well. The ss/sp came with a aluminum swingarm, while the ss/cr has a steel one.
But I hear from others that the 5.5 rim will fit perfectly on the current ss/cr swingarm.
Has anyone done this and can offer some clarity please?
Of course, if this can be done, challenge is finding a good condition 5.5 rim.
So I will proactively ask this as well....can I go we after-market light-weight rims (assuming I cant find a 5.5 rim?)
btw - I searched for about an hour on the forums before posting. So I apologize if my question is redundant.

I recently upgraded the front forks to adjustable ss/sp type.
