I have no I Beams but have some City Blocks. VTR's are the narrowest of those three.

LPR Bow Tie's 65.8mm
AKA City Block's 65.4mm
VTR Caliber's 62.8mm
JConcepts Cross Hairs 62.0mm

Those measurements varied but were close by digi cals.

I have a set of almost new (1 x 5 min run on them) that i'd sell you pretty cheap. I paid $80 for the set of 4 wheels. They are the pro-line bow-tie LPR (low profile racing) 3.7" 0 offset wheels on factory glued yellow rims. I'd let them go for $50 shipped, just let me know. They are wider than the aka's and vp-pro truggy wheels i run and have great traction due to the bow-tie tread. Just send me a pm if you want them.

Sorry, those were the LPR Bow Ties and the Cross Hairs are J Concepts.

I seek wider wheels because I did not compete with the car, I do not want monster wheels, but if I look truggy wheels but there is wider.
I think in order of width is this
lpr 3,7 bow tie
aka ibeam
vtr proline
thanks
