Today's basket is an 18-inch-diameter (46 cm) metal rim, with a 15-or 18-inch-long (38 or 46 cm), open-ended nylon net extending belowit.
With considerable effort. First you need to find another rim that's near an exact match - same spoke count, same diameter where the spoke sits, same diameter where the tire sits. Then you have to undo the spokes one by one and hook them up to the new rim. Then to get the rim round, true centered and tight.
The backboard of a basketball goal is typically 1.80 meters by 1.05 meters in area. The diameter of the rim of the basket is 0.45 meters.
The diameter of the rim is 18 inches.
aim at the front of the rim or a bit in front of the rim
A peach basket.
The radius of a circle is the distance from the centre to the rim. The diameter is the distance fron rim to rim passing through the centre point. It therefore follows that the radius is half the diameter
Depends. It's not the rim diameter that's important, but the overall diameter of the rim + tire combo. If the overall diameter changes, your odo and your speedo will be off. Bigger diameter, they will read low. Smaller diameter and the'll read high. But if you can go for a bigger rim, and a more low profile tire, then it's possible to ge the overall diameter to stay the same, and your gauges will still read true.
