Mag wheels for thruxton?

Just bought my 09 Thruxton. Already addicted to mods. One thing I wanted do was put a pair of mag wheels and get rid of the stock spoke wheels, can anyone tell me how to go about shopping for them? How do you make sure they are going to fit?

Thats easy.You call Dymag,tell them what kind of bike you have,the number on your VISA card with the highest un- used balance and they will send you the second set they ever made for a new Bonnie/Thrux/Scrambler.

Carrozeria does make a great set of wheels. They weigh about 24 pounds less than stock. Call Carlos at South Bay Triumph.

So what determines if a wheel from another bike will fit between the forks? I like the idea of 17" mags for a little sharper turn-in.
