Questions?? Tires for MST Wheels

Has anyone bought any of the wheels from MST and got normal on-road tires for them? I'm looking to get a set (or two) but it doesn't specifically state whether they're 24mm or 26mm. I don't like that stretched-tire look and I'm under the impression that a 26mm tire won't fit a 24mm rim properly. All else fails I can order a set of their AD Realistic rubber tires...

MST wheel in question is the GTR. I'm looking at the +3 offset but I don't think offset has anything to do with the width of the wheel.

Thanks, guys!

As MST has some dedicated 24mm types, I would assume that the GTR rims are 26mm.
At least all the unspecified MST rims I have in use are 26mm types, so there is propably a continuity in this case.

MST wheels come in 24mm size, so far I've used 2 styles in USGT and they have held up very well...much better than the pre-glued GT wheels. Haven't tried them in any other class yet so I can't give and info in that regard.

Uhm...ok. Soooooooooo...can I safely assume that the MST wheels are 26mm unless specifically stated? On their website, it shows the GTR wheel lists it under the "D" category, drift, I'm assuming. I can use the drift wheels with their AD Realistic tires? Plus it doesn't specifically state 24mm.

Now, they do have specific 24mm wheels under the "R" category, their LM and RE are specifically 24mm while others within the same "R" category doesn't have any size designation. <-- again, would it be safe to assume that the other tires are 26mm?

Geez...if only MST would be more detailed in their descriptions...hahahah! ugh...

Oh so true...that's why, for science, I went ahead and bought a set of the GTR and TSP with a set of the AD Realistics. I'll let you guys know how that turns out...

Ok. So I got the GTR wheels in and they're 27mm. Well, 26.9mm but that's close enough! Not sure if all the 26mm wheels are 27mm but the MST GTR in black or white are 27mm...

FOR SCIENCE!
