Can someone please give me the part number for some dished wheels that will fit the EC.

The last set I bought from Schumacher, while on the EC page, would not actually fit without hitting the wishbones presumably this was due to the offset being wrong? I think they have Standard Offset and 185-24 stamped on the rear of them

Problem is, I can't remember their part number so I don't want to make the same mistake again.

Thanks
Skiddins

Whenever I got those wheels the part number was U2500U . But I think it's the same wheel. 24mm revlite standard offset standard diameter.

Oh ummmmmm, if you flip the arm mounts around and run 200mm tc3 dogbones, with b4 front shocks and origional asphalt mi2 towers you can turn you mi2 into a rally car . No seriously... I did that .

From the UK site you get a confirmation email within 10 mins, and delivery within 48 hours.

Found the P/N od the dodgy wheels I bought, U2394R.
Why, despite the other wheels you guys have mentioned also being 'SOS' (standard Offset?) do they not fit?

I ran Mo's car with some drilled out #2 pistons (I think) and the car was dialed. Have you played around with Pistons?? I want to get one more asphalt race in before we completely go indoors but the weather and family outings may change all of that. Car was dialed though. I'm sure Mo would have been faster but then again.....that's just Mo.

Skiddins, Suspect it is the webbing on those wheels that rubs, not the offset. Those are the old style wheels that have a lot of web for strength, but are very heavy.

The EC uses very narrow hexes and several older style wheels rub the front hub when no wheel spacers are used. The older style wheels use a deeper hex pocket on the wheel and that is the major issue.
