I'm in the market for new wheels, but have a delimma. Can anyone tell me more about running a 21' front wheel. Do I have to get the front end raked for clearance or can I alter the rake of the headstock of the frame, or just leave it as it is? Any advise would be appreciated!!!

No you don't HAVE too. Its a matter of personal preference. I installed a 21 on my brothers 109 and actually like it w/o the rake. I'm sure someone will get on a say something different but I'm telling you this from my own personal experience. Here's a pic ENJOY!
And No it will not hit the radiator under heavy braking.

Pictures don't do it justice, it looks even better in person. It isn't my style but it still looks great.:bigthumbsup:
