Still have the UFO's Roger?
You can fit most anything under G60's, but what you have to be concerned with, with the UFO's are the angle of the spokes. I've had comparable rims with a 38et 7.5 wide & the spokes wouldn't clear.... but on the other hand I've had 38et 7.5 wide rims that did fit.
So as Tony said..... if you can test fit them that would obviously be the best route to take.
You have the part # of the rims?
