Putting on 2019's on my 2015

So I bought a set of rims and tires and front rotors from a seller for 850. Those come with the stock tires. He only has 500 miles on those rims as he builds bikes and sells them. He put those monstrous 28-inch rims. Anyways do I need to buy anything else to fit those rims on my 2015 RGS?

I wouldn't think so. Should just bolt on. Imo.

The only possible difference would be swapping out the ABS wheel bearings for non-ABS bearings *IF* your 2015 does not have ABS brakes.

Otherwise, I'm with the previous poster. Bolt 'em on.

They should be bolt on providing the bearings for the new rims are the same as yours. ABS vs non ABS bearings. I put a set of 2014 wheels on my 09 without any issues so I'd imagine you wont either. Go for it

Yes I have ABS. Ok thanks guys. I wonder what the dealer will charge me to put these on lmfao. Is it possible to mount the front rim yourself without any special tools using a bike Jack? I know the rear is more difficult and you need special tools so I'll take that to the dealership for sure.

You don't need special tools. Just get a socket the correct size for the axle nut. It is more difficult than the front, but I'm not paying the dealer to change my tires. You can do it yourself.

Good luck and nice buy on the 2019 wheels.

The rear is a little trickier. Make sure the axle is straight. There is an expensive tool to do this to measure, but a coat hanger works too. You tube it. And making sure you have the right tension on the drive belt. That you will need a special gizmo more to measure.
