The rim should not cause any problem - but you'll need different length spokes.

Rear hubs and front hubs are different widths, have different height hub flanges, and different amounts of "dish" (offset from the center of the hub body.

If your hubs and rims are in good shape; go ahead and re-use them; but you'll need help measuring or want to use a spoke calculator online for the correct length spokes.

Rear wheel wobbely


Not enough info here. Is it the rim or the hub that is wobbly? If the rim is out of true (and not actually bent) the spokes can be tightened to bring it back into true. If the hub is loose then the bearings need to be adjusted. Either adjustment can be done by your local bike shop for $10-20. A broken spoke can also make the wheel go out of true, this will cost a little more to fix.

Can you adjust the tension on the wheel?


What sort of tension?
Rim loose on spokes: evenly tighten the spokes to add tension ( very high skill required to keep the rim true. Pro help should be sought)
Too much wheel side play: tighten the wheel to frame axle bolt (unless the bearing is gone, then you'll need new hub bearings).
Chain tension too loose: Move the rear wheel away from the pedals by loosening the axle bolt, pulling back to remove most (but not all) or the slack from the chain. Pay attention to the alignment of the wheel in the frame. Tighten the nuts back down

My back wheel is making a ticking noise when i stand up and pedal. I lubricated the cross points of the spokes and it is still making the noise. I took the tire and tube off but i'm wondering how to get to...


You may have a loose spoke or two. A rubber liner usually covers the spoke heads. If you do your own repairs, invest in a spoke tension gauge and the tool to adjust the spokes.

I am rebuilding a rear wheel on my son's yamaha 50cc ttr. I have completed the hub spoke and rim assembly and now need to install the bearings. Can they be hammered into place or do they need to be pressed...


it is always best to press them in . set the bearing on the hub place a piece of flat steel on top of it and a piece on the bottom of the hub use a c clamp to press it in . make sure it is going in straight!!!!!

How do you disassemble bearings on the rear wheel to replace bent rim?


It sounds like you are trying to remove the hub, not disassemble bearings if you are trying to replace the rim. First off, replacing the rim requires you to rebuild the wheel, meaning re-lacing the spokes and truing the wheel. Unless you are very experinced in wheel building I sugguest you purchase a new rear wheel. Not only will it cost much less but it will save you much time and headache. Your local bike shop can help you with this. Hope this helps.
