Rear hubs to fit custom wheels...proprietary design so they will NOT fit RC, Weld, PM, etc.
Fronts will be done by end of next week...

Does anyone actually make a 280mm tire? I've never seen one.
Yup...looks like you missed the debate caused by Joe C putting a 280 on a stock rim.
Rob...how many different wheel styles will there be? I'm hoping for something trimmed down and light as possible.
Thanks.

A 280 mounted on a 10.0 rim is 10.85 wide and a 300 mounted on a 10.50 rim is 11.70 wide.
First rims to ship will be the Replicator. Have front and rear rims with several different designs in the works....Getting the weight down is hard to do in comparison to the factory hollow cast wheels. The left hub alone weighs just under 9 pounds...although it starts out as a 23 pound piece of billet. To get the weight down....no cush drive and sheet metal rims.Â

Ummm, this may be a dumb question, but if they won't fit RC Components, Weld, PM, etc. what DO they fit?? DO you have a selection of wheels to choose from that they will fit that we can see? If so we need a URL for the pics. Thanks!! :bigthumbsup: :doorag:

OK, so now I read the rest of the thread, and some of my questions were answered already. I would still like to see pics and prices of the wheels that will eventually be available to go with these hubs. Thanks! :bigthumbsup:

Ummm, sorry but yuck! I want something like these! I kinda like the Vega style, as well as the Predator and Gladiator.
Oh, and thanks for the link. I admit I'm a bit lazy at times. :p :bigthumbsup:
Those are pretty tight, but gotta remembe this is a small operation working out the details of the 280 kit. Good things will come to those who wait.
