I called them a week or so ago and was told that that's an old photo and they don't have anything for the 2-bolt axle anymore.

Default Help!

OK, I received the new wheels/tires today and there's a problem fitting the rears. Basically the way the bearings & diff interface with the drive-side wheel is completely different. There's a large, constant-diameter bore on the new wheels vs. a smaller, stepped bore on the originals. The originals also used flanged bearings. Is this as simple as a bearing swap? I've attached a pic so you can see what I'm dealing with.

Don't mind the dirt -- it's fresh off the track...

But really, the problem lies with the differences within the wheels.

I think the problem is that the current tires on the market don't work with your axle

Correct me if I'm wrong elders

In that design the wheel is part of the diff. My BRP SC18 has the same design.

Yes, with the original wheels the thrust bearing and a couple other bits are on the outboard side of the wheel hub. Is this not the case with the newer setups? On a modern car can you take the wheels off without interfering with the diff?

In that case I'm SOL here...

Yes the wheels just unbolt and the diff held together by a diff nut independent from the wheels.

Well, crap. I guess I'm thwarted as far as this approach to new tires goes.

Probably better off getting a new axle if I recall the older axles used some pretty primitive methods of clamping the left wheel.
