Default tyres

On the subject of Tyres anyone know the part number for the m05 kit tyres and inserts - been pretty impressed with them inside on carpet and could do with another set.
Thanks in advance

I installed the M05 ball diff in my M05 recently and think I "may" have installed it backwards (doh). The instructions really don't say much about installation in the car. I have it set up with the bolt head on the right side and the nut on the left side (car facing away from me). I was told the other night this was backwards. The only reason it came up is I feel the diff may be loosening a "hair" after each run. Now to my question, if this is backwards, and since I'm lazy, couldn't I just remove the bolt, thrust bearing, and nut and reverse them ? I don't seem to remember anything requiring this couldn't be done. Or, do I have to crack the chassis open and reverse it that way ? Thanks !

While it sounds like it maybe in backwards. The fact its loosening may not entirely be caused by it being in backwards.

Most people i know(including myself) have had nothing but trouble with this diff coming loose.

I would suggest looking for a TA-03 ball diff and use that instead.
