My intention is to run at least a 140 on the HP2. It lays down too much torque, and it seems like a 130 looks way too small on the back. I'm running an Avon Gripster temporarily, and it looks tiny.
Anyway. I have the rim locks. I'll be timid at first to make sure it doesn't do anything strange. If it gets strange, I'll have to send the wheel back for a rim swap. :-( I hate to be without my wheels!
warthog,,,ya got me,,,,i buildt these wheels based on what kirsi and the troops are running,,,in the megamx classes,,,,i know that the rim widths are on the narrow side to keep em from getting dents,,,,now what tires they are mounting on them
,,,will check into it
perhaps you can raise this question in the gs/hp-2 section of the forum,,,i'm not allowed in there these days
