I just purchased a front wheel with a mavic g40 rim and am looking for a rear wheel. Is it necessary that I get a wheel with the same rim? It seems that some websites post rim diameter and the g40 has a 613, but all the other rims have varying diameters. What should I do.
Don't need the same rim, do need the same diametercory

Usually, anyway. A few bikes use smaller wheels in front. As far as matching the rim exactly, though, I don't think any of my road bikes match, because sometimes I swap wheels rather than changing tires, depending on where I'm going to ride.
