Mag rims need help

Hello,

I am new to this forum, and I mainly ride beach cruiser style bikes. I like to flip them out adding new style components. On my recent build I am using mag rims, and I cannot attach the rear tire because the configuration with the sprocket is to wide to fit into the frame. If anyone has done this or has a solution please advise me with what to do.

I appreciate any help.

Thanks,
slump

Steel frames can be spread to fit a wider hub, but you run the risk of ruining the frame if you do it wrong.
