Hi there im wondering if rims & tires from a 451 will fit on my 450? and are there any downsides to doing this?
Huronlad
Tires work, wheels are not straight bolt-on due to different offsets.
latoni
thanks for the response.. what would i have to do to make the wheels fit on?
Huronlad
You would need spacers for the rear 451 wheels to fit them on a 450.

So how wide a spacer would one need? I have the same situation and I'm debating if I should . my guess is 20mm.

I used my snow tires and rims from my old 450 on my 451 and they didn't require anything extra.

451 --> 450 you will need 25mm or 30mm spacers on the rear.
