Default AKA Wheels on Jammin X1-CRT

Hey all,

Is it viable to use AKA wheels on a Jammin X1-CRT? If so what size extenders do I use? I have read through some threads, and i see members using between 12mm and 14mm extenders. But I only see 12mm, 13mm and 15mm as my options these days?

I guess i need to be educated or re-educated? An offset is the measurement of the difference between Dead Center (DC) of the wheel and the back of the wheel. Is that correct?

So if I take AKA wheels for example, the whole wheel is 58mm wide, Zero offset means the hex hub of the wheel would be at ~29mm (DC of the wheel)? So a "1/2 offset" wheel (a non-AKA 58mm wide wheel just for reference) would be half of 29mm (the difference between DC and the back), which would be around ~14mm offset? Which would also equal the size of the extender needed? which is needed to run 1/2 offset wheels, as the case if I remember correctly with the Jammin X1-crt. So 15's or 13's would you go with? Or not at all?

Or was this just a load of words, that don't mean anything? lol If so, what do i need to know?

Thanks for your time and help,
Nick

you don't need the extenders, the new style wheels work great. putt em on and go tear it up.

Are you saying that AKA zero offset will work on the crt?
