common upgrade is aluminum alloy rims and if you are reusing the original hub and spokes then the number stamped right on the rim is the rim size, next you count the spokes and start looking for rims in that size from akront or DiD or whoever and the spokes are a big problem to match if you need one or if you need all of them, with the cheapest solution usually being to purchase rims from a scrap yard damaged or better ones, then you have plenty of spokes.

I looked everywhere for wheels and there’s only about 2 online that would possibly work, I also checked with scrap yards and no one has gotten back to me with finding the right wheels, but thanks for the info that helps me a lot!
Phone call to a motorcycle scrap yard is a total waste of time, if you want to buy scrap motorcycle parts you go to the salvage yard yourself and find the parts you need, then you cut a deal with the owner who is hopefully somebody you ride with so they give you a smokin good deal.
