Yep...u can buy expensive talon or other aftermarket hub (except warp9 cuz they supposedly only work with warp9 rims) or just find some oem hubs on ebay. U can use ur stock ones but wont have dirt wheels anymore...just buy HD buchanan spokes, they are all the same size but are made stronger than others I guess.
