Well..I found a good deal on some tires/rims but the bolt pattern isnt for honda..So how would I go about measuring them....And would it effect the strength of the wheel enough to make it weak on jumps or anything? I never do anything extreme but just incase

no it won't make it any weaker, but i guess you just need to take off your honda back tires and make sure the rims are perfectly lined up ( the hole on the middle of the rim) and make a mark with a drill bit or sharpie or something like that.....so stack the two rims on top of each other the hold one on top make sure it's lined up, and just make the mark from your hole on the honda one on to the yamaha of what ever wheel they arm my rims are drilled for both honda yamaha .... and the holes are considerably larger than the stud but it makes no matter if there tight enough

Hm just glanced at it..but does it like print out the hole locations for each bolt pattern on a paper? .If so could u take that ..tape it to the wheel and drill? Your method seems better..But i think imma try what mechanic said first..I think it would work nicely..If i have troubles I'll definatly give that site a try..thats pretty neat thanks.

Yes, when you print it, it prints exactly the size of the wheel pattern you choose. Works perfectly.

Yeah, Only thing im worried about is when I go to drill if the paper or ..in your case steel template moves or something..I guess if im careful and tape it down good..it wouldnt be too bad..But i wouldnt know where to line up the hole etc. Rear 450rs are 4/144 right?

Well..you'd still have to line up the paper correctly ..or the wheel would be wobbly..I think lol.
