A real quick question. New to the Norco brand and I am a visual kinda guy. With that being said, the wheels/tire spec of the bike is just plain. What can be an dollar for dollar swap out for something with a little more eye appeal? Already swapping out some components from my FS. Nitro has 9mm QR, would like to go to 15mm TA, I know that means switching out forks also. Have a little extra money to play around with. Any suggestions would be great, thanks

I would look into maybe a set of take off wheels from someone bike. That will save you some good money maybe like a DT350/i23 combo? if you want to get real blingy go with a set of Chris king hubs or I9 trail wheels. For sure a wheelset that is convertible to a QR and 15mm that way they can serve you for a while. As for tires that a tough one it depends on what you're riding. If you ride pavement and dirt not looking for seriously aggressive tire maybe a Maxxis Arden or the fast rolling Racing Ralph or Rocket Ron, Or you could step up to a meatier tire like the Nobby Nic, Has Hampf, even like High Roller
