I did a quick search with no luck.

What years ZX10 & ZX6 wheels are compatible with the '08 ZX10? Not including rotors.

TIA :eek:ccasion1

dunno if this will help u mate but the wheels off my 2010 zx6r wont fit my 2011 zx10r well they kinda do but still dont. the 600 rear wheel fits in the swing arm of the zx10 but the spacers on the wheel are about 10mm to narrow on the sprocket side so theres abit of play. the front 600 wheel fits perfictly but the discs on the 600 are only 300mm and the 1000 ones are 310mm. iv measured up a 2009 zx10 front wheel and it has the 310 discs. theres some info for ya but dunno if it will help

not sure what it would be like on the road but a few racers over here in australia like to use the standed 5.5 600 wheel in there 1000s cos it gives the tyre a taller profile on the rim and makes the bike turn in quicker so they say but i have never tried it.

it would seem better to just run a 190/55 on a 6" rear rim instead of a 190/50........you'd have a slightly larger contact patch i would think? or raise the ass of the bike a few mm's to aid in turn in?(but that could lead to front end issues some say) but whatever works is what counts though.

Ah yes...I'm just looking for in info on the front wheel. It seems that it's always a casualty in a crash. I have a spare rear but the front has proven hard to find.

With this info, 05 to 10 front wheel from zx6r will fit your 10r. I have 05/06 and 07/08 mounted directly to my 09 6r.
