Anyone know of any double spoked wheels (similar to the ones available for the RnineT scrambler) that would fit the G310R?

Yes, would definitely want tubeless wheels. No specific model in mind, would like black rim and silver spokes, just after some pricing and availability information at the moment.

The G310R has a front rim dimension of 3.0 x 17" and rear of 4.0 x 17". What I could find for spoke rims with a diameter of 17" are too wide. Maybe I'm not looking at the right aftermarket sites.

What kind of mods will you need to do to make a wider set of wheels fit onto the g310r? Would half an inch to an inch affect it that much?

Sorry, not meaning to discourage you but this sounds like a very very difficult customization project! Since you can't just buy the hubs separately (they're integral part of the current alloy wheels), you'd need to find wheels that have the correct hub specs (axle/bearing diameter match, width of the hub match, mounting points for rotors and ABS sensor rings to fit, sprocket carrier to fit or proper alignment of chain to if different sprocket carrier, etc.). I doubt any aftermarket company will venture into a G310R-specific wheelset anytime soon and finding something out there that would be bolt-on would require more than a lot of chance!

We, here at Rally Raid Products, in the UK will have spoked wheels for the GS in 19"/17" sizes, tubed and tubeless, and will do a small batch of 17"/17" wheels for the R model, just to test demand.
Contact us for more details
We have designed and CNC machined billet alloy hubs for the GS, and they will fit exactly the R model.

That's sounds fair. Real world testing before selling to the consumers.
Although the anticipation of what you are offering is driving me 🥜
So little aftermarket available, just hope the pricing is in my budget for this little bike.
Thanks and keep us updated, I see many here on the forum wanting quite a few items.:grin2:

My thoughts too, that's almost 25% the price of the whole bike.

That's how much high quality spoked tubeless wheels cost to make... this is why the G310GS comes with cast wheels as standard, to help keep the base price down.

If you're looking to change the stock wheels for spokes purely for looks, then it's possibly something some people may need to reconsider?

However, if you are looking at the G310GS as an affordable base [bike] to build your own 'ultimate' Adventure ride, then consider that the low initial MSRP potentially leaves you with a correspondingly larger budget to modify and personalise into something that more perfectly suits your needs.

I think we've only just begun to realise the potential in this smaller, lighter BMW.
