Willis 6057,
They look petty cool but like most things from China it's a crap shoot. You may actually receive the rims you order or you may just be out your money. They may be good quality or they may fold on you when tooling down the highway. I do like that little XV250 bobber shown though.
As an example I have an old 1957 Cushman scooter I have one supplier for ignition points. He's located in North Carolina but his ignition parts are imported from China. I may go thru 3 sets before I find a set that will perform properly.

If I were you I wouild look for something a little closer to home. I know there isn't a lot of support for aftermarket "cool" stuff for the XV250 so sometime you have to take a gamble. Just my 2 cents.

By the way please put your location in the profile section of the forum page. It helps others help you if we know where your located.
Thanks and good luck on what you decide.
Tom

For a 250, should not be a problem. Little bikes are really common here, not like you will be doing 100mph on a 250.

You might also think a little outside the box. Look through the list of bikes that match your axle diameter and search for those bikes. You might need to buy a new disk for it as well to fit the hole pattern. You may also need spacers to get the disk into right place and the wheel centered. But all of this is workable.

I would suggest using www.taobao.com It is the world's largest e-commerce website. they have a rating system out of 5. 4.7 and higher is good

you might want to think about a kit like this... https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.5-c.w4002-1842740015.35.75094cdd70Eu8K&id=522598862626

I have a version of this on my Chinese 110. works great. Again a little research will be needed.

and these are some great looking rims available in different sizes... https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.49.HxE72N&id=45731401791&ns=1&abbucket=17#detail
