Has anyone else done the Cyclic H3 caliper upgrade, and what wheels have you used?

    Incidentally, I checked with my local Discount Tire, and their supplier is telling us that Black Rock 937 series wheels are in "discontinued" status. Now I REALLY have to figure out an alternate wheel that would fit the brake upgrade.
    :thinking: :1zhelp:

    Black rock also makes an aluminum version.
    You are looking for a H3 fit with close to zero offset.
    The generic rims I used in the past only needed 1/4 spacer to fit and work, so something like classic wagon wheels might fit just fine (16 or 17 inch that is).

    I got an email reply back from Thor Parts. They are currently making a batch of brackets and I am now on the waiting list. He said that he would email me when they're ready so I can pay.

    So if any of you are looking to buy the brackets, email him. Also it might not hurt to inquire about 8lug versions as well.

    Good work team! I found out that he has 8 lug versions in production. I'm on the list as well.
