    This is a project I am currently working on. The wheels work fine as long as you have the spacers as stated previously. Hope you all enjoy.

    at are you guys doing on the brake side, ive got some monkey wheels from a 2009 and brake hub is a far way in from the knob on the swingarm.. i did a quick measure of a Z50R wheel and it was exactly the same width.

    would be nice to see more detailed photos either side of the hub.

    Never mind guys... i did some more measuring and the Z50J rims go straight on as well, the distance between the brake hub and the sproket are the same on CRF rim vs Z50J ... I thought i was going to have to make spacers up either side but its just the sprocket side needs the spacer.

    Randomly came across this in a google search and yeah I know I'm reviving it...

    After making a ride with the NOLA Ruckus crew sunday and seeing all the fat tires, I'm itching to do one on my street legal CRF50. It appears from reading, I only need a Z50 wheel, hub, brake and a spacer... Right? Or does a CRF50 brake drum happen to fit on it? I'm also considering getting some knockoff wheels, hub and brake so I can get new stuff.

    Any help, info or more pictures is appreciated!

    Anyone know what size tire you can fit on a Z50 wheel inside a CRF50 swingarm? 3.5" I'm confident will fit, but curious if I could fit a 4.00" inside the arm?

    A 3.50 x 8 tire does fit, the 50 and 70 swingarm is the same width, they both use the same rear axle. The bike in THIS POST has 3.50 tires on it, and an XR70 swingarm.
    You might want to keep tabs on that same thread, the Original Poster is planning on using 4.00 x 8s on his bike.
    Quite possibly, the chain may hit the 4.00 sidewall

    Cool, I appreciate the info man! I actually ordered a set of 4.00 x 8 yesterday with hopes I can either figure a way to fit it on the stock 50 arm or if I need to I can find a used 70 arm. I should have waited, but got antsy.

    EDIT: Well I guess a 70 arm isn't much different, if at all from a 50 arm? I didn't realize the guy in the other thread had an aftermarket arm. I guess I need to just wait till the 4.00 comes in and I can see if it'll fit or how I can fit it with a stock arm. Assuming it's going to be right at 1/4" wider on each side of the 4.00 tire, how close is your 3.50 tire to the chain now? thanks again for the info!

    crf50 brake works, so just wheel, hub and either a bigger spacer, extra spacer, or a few 12mm washers to act as a spacer.
