1500 front wheel question

Post by offcenter »



Does anyone know if the front wheel was the same on all 1500s?
I have '99 and I'm looking to get a spare front wheel. I see many
advertised on Ebay that say they are from earlier models.

What about the brake discs? are they the same for the front
of all years?

Thanks guys.

AFAIK all 1500 front wheels & rotors are the same.

The '88 and '89 are a bit different I believe. All the others are the same. If you buy a replacement, I'd stay with a 1990 and later.

I know that the REAR wheels are different, but I wasn't sure about the fronts.
Now the search is on.
Thanks again, Guys.
