What spokes do I need?

I'm confused on this. I have a 17 X 5.5in wheel on my Bonneville. Can anyone help me understand how to go about getting spokes for this wheel?

might help if we know where in the world you are located as there are members here from Norway to New Zealand who ride Triumphs

so the width of the wheel doesn't matter? a 3.5in rear wheel and a 5.5in rear wheel, laced the the same bonneville hub, will take the same spoke kit from buchanan?

I would think so...but I am not an expert. Give them a call...Super Helpful. I respoked my 2001 Stock rim about 10 years ago. Excellent product with fast shipping
